Haim Yellin, a Member of Knesset of the Yesh Atid party, was attacked by stone throwers outside the community of Shadmot Mehola in the northern Jordan Valley on Thursday, January 28.

MK Yellin was in Shadmot Mehola making a condolence visit to the family of Shlomit Krigman, the 24-year-old victim of the deadly stabbing attack in the Jewish community of Beit Horon, earlier this week on January 25.

Soon after leaving the community in the late afternoon, Yellin’s car was hit by a barrage of rocks thrown by Arab assailants on route 505 in central Samaria.

While Yellin’s vehicle sustained extensive damage as rocks and bricks shattered his window and windshield, the MK himself escaped the incident unharmed.

Yellin is the former Head of the Eshkol Regional Council, which suffered numerous rocket attacks from Gaza over the past years.

“This time it was a concrete block and not a rocket,” commented MK Yellin immediately after the attack.

“We can’t stop our daily lives because of terrorists who throw stones, stab or shoot. We have to strike against terror with all our might while not forgetting to embrace and comfort the families of the victims,” said Yellin.

Security forces and the Knesset Guard, an Israeli protective security unit, are investigating the attack.

  1. perhaps they thought it was Ban ki moon in the car, showing him how his approval of terrorist activity against Israeli settlements is played out – Or maybe these palestinians were adhering to moon's quote of "It's human nature to react to occupation which serves as a potent inubator to hate and extremism…" – So I suppose they considered the MK's car was an incubator eh?

  2. You're an idiot, repeating the exact same lie Israeli governments have repeated since 1967, while promoting the Jihad on your tiny strip of land by millions of overwhelmingly genocidal mythical so-called Palestinians instead of repatriating these savage barbarians to Jordan & Egypt whence they came in 1967.
    Yes, the old we'll strike hard bull****. Please! I'm thoroughly and completely sick of this same line of crap you feed the stupid moronic Israeli people who wouldn't know what to do with millions of overwhelmingly genocidal jihadists if you gave them to them for 49 years. Oh, that's right, that's exactly what happened.

  3. David Munoz I loath to see such ignorance in action, as you have just proved, you know nothing of the middle east history, you just dive in like a turd into a toilet bowl, espousing an echo of the bias circulating the globe and creating an equally bad stink. Yes, your hatred overrides any factual evidence of whose land it truly is.
