A man died on Wednesday after being shot at the entrance to an Israeli medical center after stabbing a security guard during a dispute that started because he was not wearing a mask, the authorities have confirmed.

The incident occurred outside the Sheba Medical Center near Tel Aviv when the man identified as Mustafa Yunes refused to wear a mask, which triggered a fight.

Yunes, 26, who lives in the mostly Arab city of Arara in northern Israel, entered a mall in the area and was interviewed by several people who asked him to put on a mask.
