Behind The Mask- The Youth Center Case

This gripping true crime series reopens the unsolved case of the tragic crime that shocked one of the world’s most liberal cities. Including dramatic new evidence and never-before-seen testimonies, three suspenseful episodes reveal the real story of the first (and only) mass shooting in Israel that was not terror related
On a Saturday night in August 2009, at 10.30pm, a man dressed in black entered the basement floor of a residential building in the heart of Tel Aviv and began firing dozens of bullets. Within a few minutes, two were dead and eleven seriously injured. The place, known as “The Youth Bar”, was packed with LGBTQ youths aged 13 to 21. The security cameras captured an image of a figure dressed in black escaping to the nearby street. From there, he vanished without a trace.
