Terror Victim’s Widow Targeted in Shooting Attack Near Karmei Tzur

Saturday, October 29th, 2016

It’s an old adage that lightning doesn’t strike in the same spot twice, but that doesn’t hold true for Jews in Judea and Samaria when it comes to terrorist attacks.

Ruthi Gillis, the widow of Dr. Shmuel Gillis, z’l, was targeted at around 7:30 pm Saturday night by Arab terrorists who opened fire at her while she was driving near the junction leading to her home community of Karmei Tzur.

Her husband, a doctor at Jerusalem’s Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center, died in February 2001 in a similar terrorist attack, the victim of a drive-by shooting on his way home from a night shift.

He was attacked on Highway 60 in Judea, close to Karmei Tzur, as he passed the Arab village of El Aroub, just south of Gush Etzion.

Karmei Tzur is about five minutes south of El Aroub, and about 10 minutes north of Kiryat Arba.

This time, no one was physically injured in the attack. Gillis called police as soon as she heard and saw the bullets fly past, but kept driving until she made it to Gush Etzion, north of Karmei Tzur.

Security forces were deployed to search for the attacker, and later found two bullet casings close to the spot where Gillis was targeted.

The attackers and their vehicle have not yet been found.

IDF engineers, backed by security and other Israeli forces demolished the home of Muhammad Taraiyre, in accordance with Israeli policy, which mandated the destruction of the family home of any Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist who murders an Israeli.

The eighth grader was stabbed dozens of times on the morning after having participated in a dance event organized by the local dance arts center in Kiryat Arba. Her bedroom was covered in blood by the time the security team reached her, witnesses said.

She passed away a few hours after the attack in Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, and was laid to rest in the ancient Jewish cemetery in Hebron.

One of the Rapid Response Team security personnel who raced to the scene when the infiltrator’s presence was detected was also critically injured at the scene. Yehoshua Gilboa is a member of a famiy that has already lost two sons to terrorism, and is a volunteer with the Kiryat Arba security team.

Shuki Gilboa was stabbed by the attacker, and also sustained a bullet wound as the result of friendly fire during the clash with the terrorist. He ultimately lost the sight in his right eye as a result of the battle but doctors at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center were able to save his life.
