Hundreds of residents from Shavei Shomron and the region held a special Yom Haatzmaut celebration on Tuesday morning. The event was marked by honoring local resident who survived a terrorist attack a month ago. In March the resident, who is in his early 70's, was shot in the legs by terrorists while driving near the neighboring community of Kedumim.
"I received a free gift from G-d and I hope I can make worth of it," the survivor stated. The celebration was also attended by Member of Knesset Nissan Slomiansky, and other local elected officials.
