Palestinian Terrorists Target Israeli Woman

A 27-year-old Israeli woman was injured on Monday in a shooting attack near Ateret in West Bank. The Palestinian terrorists involved in the attack are said to have fired about five bullets at two vehicles carrying Israelis. The woman, identified as Mevaseret Cohen, is in stable condition, Magen David Adom’s medical staff report.

At the time of the attack, Mevaseret was with her husband, Yishai Cohen, and their six-week-old baby. Fortunately, her family was not harmed. Yishai, a reservist soldier, had just come from the Gaza Strip, where he had been fighting Hamas terrorists. Speaking to the press, he said he used his gun to fire back at the Palestinian terrorists, prompting them to escape.

Mevaseret’s mom, Tamar Amar, told Ynet news outlet that the six-week-old baby was born at the time his father was fighting Palestinian terrorists in Gaza after they launched a deadly attack on Israel back in October.

The elderly Israeli woman said the security situation had become worse in the West Bank since the start of the war. Meanwhile, the Israeli Defense Forces has already launched a manhunt for the Palestinian terrorists behind Monday’s attack.
