A resident of Binyamin who traveled last night with his family (6 people) encountered a large stone barricade near the settlement of Ma'ale Levona. When he reached the barricade, Arab rioters blocked the road in front of him, pelted the family with stones, and endangered their lives. The resident fired at the rioters in self-defense and rescued his family from the scene.
The head of the Binyamin Regional Council, Israel Gantz, spoke with the resident and expressed his support: "You acted as expected and required of every citizen in such a situation. You protected the lives of your wife and four children. Much respect for handling the situation correctly."
At this stage, the road is blocked due to the security forces' activity in locating the rioters.
