An armed Jewish civilian in Mishor Adumim — a few minutes outside of Jerusalem — became a hero early Sunday afternoon when his quick thinking saved the lives of two haredi-religious Jews who were attacked by an Arab terrorist.

The civilian, who was passing by in his car, spotted the terrorist as he was running after the couple at the Mishor Adumim intersection near the gas station, trying to stab the man with a screwdriver.

He opened fire and shot the attacker, neutralizing him and saving the lives of his intended victims.

The terrorist was taken to a nearby Jerusalem hospital in serious condition.

Paramedics from the Magen David Adom emergency medical response service treated three people at the scene for severe anxiety.
