Female Drivers Escape Arab Ambush
Palestinian Authority resident criminal gangs continue to target Israeli drivers for theft, and women travelling alone in particular. Two women escaped attempted carjackings at the last minute on Monday evening.
The two told Arutz Sheva their stories.
“At around 9 p.m. I passed through the Hizme junction on my way home, and suddenly I lost control of the car,” one recalled. “There was something on the road that made the car slip sideways.”
She pulled over to see what was wrong, and a car immediately pulled up behind her.
