Police Arrest Innocent Jews Who Shot Their Way Out of 20-Arab Ambush
Defending yourself from being brutally murdered by terrorists appears to be illegal.
Two Israeli civilians escaped a well organized ambush as they were driving along Rt. 60 early Wednesday morning. Near Silwad, some 8 miles north-east of Ramallah in the Benjamin region of Judea and Samaria, their car was suddenly attacked by dozens of Arab terrorists who started throwing rocks at them. According to a report from Honenu attorney Adi Keidar, the crowd had the full intention of lynching their Jewish victims.
Despite the immediate damage to their car, one of the two Israelis managed to come out with his gun drawn and shot at one of the attackers, causing all of them hightail it.
According to the IDF, at least 20 Arabs were involved in the attempted lynching.
Police did not hesitate and immediately arrested the two victims of the terrorist attack, and took them for questioning at the police station at Sha’ar Binyamin. The two were interrogated for hours and then were released on bail and were told not to contact each other.
Meanwhile, a demonstration was held outside the police station, calling for the residents to be released and for police to change their policy and act against Arab terrorism.
