Magen David Adom ambulance evacuates wounded to hospital after terror attack. (file)

Two Israeli soldiers were wounded Friday night in a terror attack on Highway 443, near the Jewish community of Beit Horon.

Highway 443 used to be the main traffic artery between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. The soldiers were deployed at a checkpoint on the road, part of which runs through Samaria, at the time of the attack.

One of the soldiers was shot by an Arab terrorist, sustaining wounds to his lower body. The other was badly bruised but not shot.

The attack took place at about the same time southern Israel was under rocket fire from Gaza.

The soldiers had walked over to investigate a suspicious vehicle when an armed Arab within the car suddenly pulled out a gun and opened fire, then fled.

Israeli Police forces fanned out to hunt for the terrorist. Magen David Adom emergency medical personnel evacuated the two soldiers to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.

  1. Norman Glickman, this is what God commanded:

    10 When thou comest nigh unto a city to fight against it, then proclaim peace unto it.

    11 And it shall be, if it make thee answer of peace, and open unto thee, then it shall be, that all the people that is found therein shall be tributaries unto thee, and they shall serve thee.

    12 And if it will make no peace with thee, but will make war against thee, then thou shalt besiege it:

    13 And when the Lord thy God hath delivered it into thine hands, thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword:

    14 But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies, which the Lord thy God hath given thee.

    15 Thus shalt thou do unto all the cities which are very far off from thee, which are not of the cities of these nations.

    16 But of the cities of these people, which the Lord thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth:

    17 But thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee:

    18 That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against the Lord your God.
