At approximately 8:30 AM Wednesday, an Arab terrorist jumped a Jewish vehicle in the village of Hawara, south of Shechem in Samaria.
The Arab tried to stab the occupants inside the vehicle, a father and his daughter, at which point the driver fired at the terrorist and wounded him.
Yehoshua Sherman, who works for the Right-Wing Union election campaign, who drove the vehicle that was jumped by the terrorist. Sherman told the TPS news agency: “I went to work at the party headquarters and drove from Elon Moreh [with my daughter] to Tapuah. A few meters before the Beitot junction, a terrorist with a knife jumped on the vehicle and tried to open the door. I got out, and while the terrorist was trying to circle the vehicle in my direction, I neutralized him with gunfire, with the assistance of a truck driver from Yitzhar who was driving behind me.”
Sherman’s daughter was in the car with him.
The terrorist was evacuated to Beilinson (Rabin) Medical Center in Petah Tikva, and subsequently died of his wounded.
IDF and Border Police forces were called to the scene.
