An Arab mob ambushed a female Jewish motorist with rocks Wednesday morning, then proceeded to kick her and try and wrest her from the car.

The woman, 38-year-old Tekoa resident Ribi Lev-Ohayon, described her ordeal to Arutz Sheva.

She was left wounded by rocks and kicks to her entire body, but managed to escape after other Jewish motorists intervened, with one allegedly shooting and injuring one of her attackers. 

The victim was taken to Shaare Tzedek hospital in stable condition.

The attack took place outside the Arab village of Beit Sahour, near Bethlehem, on a route used by thousands of Jewish motorists every day.

While rock attacks by Arabs have become nearly routine, this is the first time in recent years that such an attack was followed by attempts to physically engage the motorist and perhaps abduct her.
