Earlier this week, a terrorist opened fire at an Israeli vehicle at the Einbus intersection in Kfar Hawara in Samaria.
The MDA team that was called to the scene provided initial medical treatment to a 30-year-old man who was moderately injured and evacuated him to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva. The IDF closed the entrances to the village from both sides and the alert level in Samaria was raised due to fears of riots.
At the end of the searches for the terrorist, 28-year-old Lit Nazar from the village of Madama, was arrested and handed over to the security forces for interrogation.
The wounded man is David Stern, a resident of Itamar and a 30-year-old American citizen. Stern managed to return fire and wound the terrorist - who left his weapon at the scene when he fled the scene.
His 35-year-old wife stayed with him in the car when he was shot and suffered anxiety attacks and was taken to the hospital.
Shlomo Blas, Stern's brother-in-law described that "there was a great miracle here. He is a skilled fighter and functioned calmly at the moment of truth. He acted with determination and we should also thank God."
