A Jordanian man, age 25, that infiltrated into Israel threw a rock at an Israeli woman driving along Road 90, south of the Kinneret.

The driver crashed into the side rail and the Jordanian man tried to force her out of her car. The woman, Roten Aharoni, age 23, fought back and the man gave up and then tried his luck with another vehicle that had stopped to help.


After failing to get the second car’s door open, the Jordanian man ran away.

A third car arrived and called the police.

The woman was taken to Poria hospital in Tiberias.

Around an hour later, the Jordanian man showed up heading towards Kibbutz Degania Bet. A kibbutz guard saw him and when the man refused to stop, the guard shot him in the lower body.

Police arrested the Jordanian citizen.

The IDF said the man is mentally ill, and he crossed over from Jordan this morning.
