"wow, didnt expect that. THats why i kill bugs"

Its a beetle - coleoptera.
Not a bug - hemiptera/homoptera.

Of the estimated 400000 beetle species, most are veggies and perform some sort of useful function (though they also include some serious pests)

You kill bugs `cos you`re ignorant.

"where the hell is this beetle from?"

Coastal plains of Israel.

I think Tel Aviv being in the title is a bit of a clue, and googling epomis carabid very quickly gives this.

That`s one mean carabid!
