Following the exclusive report Sunday on a recent carjacking in
Samaria, yet another eyewitness account of a carjacking incident has
reached Arutz Sheva.
Yaakov Gonen, a resident of Karnei Shomron, described a carjacking
that he witnessed last week, in the early afternoon.
He was on his way eastward from Rishon LeTzion toward Karnei Shomron.
A short distance after the Tzofim Junction, he looked leftward and
saw a parked car, and "some kind of struggle" going on inside it.
"I saw the car standing but moving, and I saw the door opening and a
woman being pushed out of it, and shouting ´help!´ as she was being
pushed… As I am running, I see an Arab Subaru vehicle getting nearer
in reverse. The driver is looking backward and driving toward us."
A few seconds passed and the woman who had been struggling with the
attacker was thrown out of the vehicle. Her hand was caught in the
seat belt, though, and she was dragged on the ground for a few meters
before she could free it.
The Subaru driver got out of his car and ran into the bushes, leaving
his car behind. But a short time later a third man got into the
Subaru and drove away with it. Gonen realized that the three were
working as a team.
All the while, cars were driving by – mostly driven by Arabs – and no
After 25 minutes, a military force arrived but did not even try to
give chase to the thieves, who were probably already in Kalkilya.
Gonen wrote about the incident in his community´s email group and
called on all those who do not possess gun permits – to get them, "or
take along a baseball bat."
He also noted that the Arabs prefer to on women and suggested that
women avoid driving alone, especially in the evening and nighttime.
The police´s Judea and Samaria District said in response to a query
by Arutz Sheva: "The subject is known and is on the District´s
agenda. Following the events, the police are carrying out an
intensive investigation and also carrying out operational moves, both
visible and undercover." (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 02/20/12)
