Driver Claims Carjacking on Jerusalem-Modi'in Road

A Jewish motorist reported, Sunday evening, that he picked up two hitchhikers at a gas station near Beit Horon on Route 443, the Jerusalem-Modi'in road. He said the two pretended to be Jews.

A few hundred meters later, they attacked him, threw him out of the vehicle and made off with it. The driver, who was lightly injured, made his way to the Ofer roadblock, and did not require medical attention. Police took a statement from him and initiated searches and checks at other roadblocks to locate the vehicle.
