Wounded Israeli: It Was a Very Big Miracle

Ronen Edri, 46, who was wounded in a shooting attack on Sunday as he drove past the Jit intersection, near Kedumim in Samaria, spoke to Channel 20 and recalled the ordeal.

Edri was lightly wounded by shrapnel in his hand, but managed to continue driving to a nearby IDF base, where he was treated by the Ephraim Brigade's medics.

"I got up for a normal work day. I was driving to work and in front of me was a vehicle that was traveling relatively slowly. I kept driving until the intersection, I turned right and the second after I turned right, I heard a tremendous noise. A volley of gunfire destroyed the window to the left. I made a preliminary assessment that I can respond, I stepped on the gas and got away as fast as possible," Edri recalled.

"I was wounded in the hand, shrapnel in the back. All in all, thank G-d, it was a very, very big miracle. I am grateful for the miracle, I could have been in quite a different place right now," he added.

The attack joins a long list of terrorist incidents that have occurred recently on the roads of Judea and Samaria and in Jerusalem. 

Last Wednesday, Arab terrorists threw a firebomb at a Border Police vehicle in the A-Tur neighborhood of Jerusalem. 

Border Police officers inside the car managed to extricate themselves from the vehicle before it caught on fire and burned down. A 23-year-old officer sustained minor smoke inhalation in the incident and was brought to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in the capital. 

On Saturday night, an Arab driver tried to run over a group of soldiers who were standing at the Hakvasim junction on Mount Hevron. One of the soldiers was lightly injured in his foot.
