Man Wounded in PA Gang Car Theft

A man approximately age 60 was seriously injured Monday in a carjacking outside the Palestinian Authority town of Hussan, near the Israeli city of Beitar Illit.

Witnesses told paramedics that the man, a resident of Jerusalem, attempted to prevent thieves from taking his car and was run over as they drove away. He is suffering head injuries.

PA car theft gangs have plagued highways in Judea and Samaria (Shomron) for the past several months. The gangs often target lone female drivers and others they hope will be easy targets.
