JewishPress.com reported yesterday on the husband that shot in the air to save his wife from an Arab attack in Jerusalem’s Old City.
More details have become available, as a grandson posted some more of the details on Facebook.
The man, an 80 year old grandfather, was with his family when the attack happened.
The Arabs began cursing them, and violently hit one of the children. At which point the grandfather pulled out his gun and fired in the air, scaring them away.
Police arrived, and then arrested the Jewish family and opened criminal charges against them. The police also confiscated the grandfather’s gun.
The grandfather was then taken to the hospital, apparently from the shock.
