Arab terrorists opened fire Monday night at an armored Israeli bus that was traveling on the road near the Jewish community of Talmon*, in the Binyamin region northwest of Jerusalem, and east of Modi’in Illit.

The attack took place at Tzomet HaParsa – the “U-Turn” Junction. The bus arrived at Talmon with at least seven bullet holes in its sides.

None of the riders were physically injured in the attack.

Jewish communities in that area are relatively small and not easy to spot as they are nestled among the hills and valleys of the Mateh Binyamin Regional Council district. The roads are somewhat curvy and not easy to negotiate for novice drivers.

* The community of Talmon was founded in 1989. Talmon is the name of the family of gatekeepers of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, who returned to rebuild Jerusalem during the time of the Prophet Nehemiah.
