Palestinian gunmen attack Jewish motorists

Thursday, August 13, 2009 |  Israel Today Staff

Palestinian terrorist gunmen in a passing vehicle opened fire on three Jewish motorists in Samaria on Wednesday night. Two of the Israelis were lightly wounded when the gunfire shattered their vehicle's windows.

The vehicle sustained substantial damage, and it was a miracle that its passengers did not suffer more severe injuries.

The attack took place near the Jewish community of Ma'aleh Levona near the Palestinian-controlled town of Nablus. Israeli forces immediately set up roadblocks in the area in an effort to catch the terrorists, but the latter are believed to have escaped to the safety of Palestinian-controlled areas before they could be captured.
