Shechem Arab Steals Havat Gilad Car During Bomb Scare


An Arab stole a vehicle belonging to a woman from the Samarian Jewish outpost community of Havat Gilad (Gilad's Farm) in a traffic jam that developed after the discovery of a suspicious object on the Gilad Route of the Samaria highway between the Jewish communities of Kedumim and Yitzhar.

The woman was trying to convince police to let her travel home when she saw the Arab enter her car and speed off with it. They responded to her screams for help regarding the theft by saying "There's nothing that can be done," as the car made its way down the road toward Palestinian Authority-assigned Shechem. The security coordinator of Havat Gilad and others who had been caught in the traffic jam tried to pursue the stolen vehicle, but it passed another roadblock and disappeared into Shechem.
