The 25-year-old man was shot while standing on the fourth-floor balcony of a building in the northern city, a suburb of Haifa.
Medics arrived at the scene and evacuated him to Haifa’s Rambam Health Center, where he was conscious and in a stable but serious condition.
Officials said it was not yet clear how the gunman had managed to shoot the man, and police opened an investigation.
The shooting came amid a worrying rise in organized crime activity across the country.
