Israeli Father Shoots & Kills Palestinian Terrorist Attempting to Stab His Daughter


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. 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 teenage girl 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.

“I was on my way to work at the party office and was driving from Elon Moreh towards Tapuah,” Sherman told TPS. “At Beytot Junction, a terrorist carrying a knife jumped on my car, and tried to open one of the doors. I got out, and while the terrorist was trying to go around the car to approach me, I shot and neutralized him, with the help of a Yitzhar resident who had been driving his truck behind me.”

Samaria Regional Council chief Yossi Dagan lauded Sherman for successfully neutralizing the terrorist and foiling the attack.

  1. Boruch Hashem! But should you really be publicising the name of the shooter thereby letting anyone who wants to take revenge chas veShalom to know?

  2. Chasdie Hashem.
    I hope Mr. Sherman can retain a good lawyer. You know, the corrupt AG, Avi Mandelblit, will try to destroy and make his life miserable.

  3. To the editor of The Yeshiva World:
    I would like to mention 2 things:
    1. Thank you for doing a wonderful job with the latest news and thank you for letting many comments go thru.
    2. I am sure you guys know very well from the past, that when the arabs find out the name of the person that shot back in self defense, they don’t go to sleep on that story.
    Let us all treat all Jewish people as if they are our own children.
