Israeli survives Arab shooting attack near Nablus

Maariv: Yael Zar was driving home on the road bypassing Nablus on Wednesday night when Palestinians opened fire at her car. A few bullets hit the vehicle but Zar was unhurt.

"I thought stones were being thrown at the car," Zar recalled. "[When] I came across an IDF jeep...the soldiers shone their searchlight at the car and showed me bullet holes in the wheel and door."

On March 29, 2001, Yael's son Gilad Zar, the Samaria regional council's security officer, was shot dead on that very same road.
