Arabs ambush Israeli driving home, throw large rocks at his car

Arutz Sheva, February 12, 2018.

Aviv Ankri, a 26-year-old student, was ambushed on Sunday night by Arabs throwing rocks at his car.

The attack occurred at 8:50 p.m. Sunday night, not far from the Trans-Samaria Highway checkpoint.

A large rock hit the windshield, just in front of Ankri’s face. He continued driving until he reached the checkpoint, where a friend arrived to drive him to Kfar Saba’s Meir Hospital.

Glass hit Ankri’s face, ears, and mouth, and he now suffers from severe headaches and anxiety.

“They threw a huge rock at him,” Ankri’s mother told Arutz Sheva. “We were lucky that it didn’t penetrate [the vehicle], because it would’ve ended his life. We need to say a prayer of thanks, urgently.”
