Stabbing Attack Averted In Shomron


B’chasdei Hashem, yet another attempted stabbing attack was averted by the quick actions of a civilian driver, Yehoshua Sherman of Elon Moreh, who shot and critically wounded the terrorist, who died a short time later in Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikvah.

The attempted attack occurred at about 8:40 AM Wednesday morning at Chawarah Junction, south of Shechem, when the terrorist armed with a knife opened the door of a private vehicle passing through the area, trying to attack the passenger seated in the front of the car. The driver, Yehoshua, the father of the teenager in the passenger seat, pulled his pistol and fired at the terrorist, critically wounding him.

The attack occurred on Route 60, the primary north-south vehicular route in Shomron, as the residents of the ‘Gav HaHar’ communities including Har Bracha are required to drive thorough the Arab village of Chawarah to and from their homes.
