An Israeli man was killed in Thailand on Sunday in what police suspect was a mob hit. Two Israelis linked to the "Israeli mafia" in the country were reportedly arrested on suspicion of murder.


Maor Malul, a member of an organized crime group, had served time in Israel for attempted murder, was killed on the island of Ko Samui. 


Security camera footage shows a Honda slamming into the motorcycle on which Malul and his wife were riding. Afterward, the car is seen reversing speedily in order to hit Malul, who tried to flee. After a few dozen meters the car can be seen hitting Malul again, and then two of its occupants get out, stab him and flee the scene. The bleeding Malul still manages to get up but then loses consciousness.


Thai media outlets have reported that local police arrested two Israelis linked to the "Israeli mafia" on suspicion of murder.

Crikey, not a very professional looking hit although obviously successful.

Could well have killed or maimed many others.

Quite often CCTV catches Thai people carrying out violence as well.

Sometimes CCTV isnt working .

In this case it was .

I dont think that we need to suspicious about that


according to my thai friends many cameras are dummy or simply not connected to a network, one friend was the victim of crime and suggested the police view the cctv - not connected was the reply. there are about 12 cameras in my small local park that also has 4 security guards and has never to my knowledge experienced any crime maybe some will do something bad there sometime and make the investment worthwhile...
