A KRAfft printing company worker was killed Friday in an explosion at its printing facility in the central Israeli city of Tel Aviv, according to the Hebrew-language Israeli news site JPost.
The explosion occurred around 2:00 p.m. local time, according a police spokesperson.
A local media report said that a blast caused extensive damage to the building.
Israeli news outlet Haaretz reported that KRAF was the largest printing company of the Knesset.
A number of the printing presses at the company were reportedly on fire, according the news outlet.
The incident comes just days after the Tel Aviv city council passed a bill that requires the establishment of a fire-safety committee in the municipality.
Israel’s largest printing companies, KRAf and Jpost, have come under fire in recent months after employees of the companies were accused of using racist, anti-Semitic and anti-Arab rhetoric.
A KRIK printing press was burned down in 2014.
In April, the Israeli media reported that a number of employees of Jpost had been fired after it was discovered that they were wearing blackface, a practice used by Jews to hide their identities.
