An Israeli citizen was moderately injured in a terrorist incident that took place Wednesday afternoon, almost exactly where terrorists shot and killed Chermesh resident Meir Tamari on May 30.
The Israeli managed to go to the closest checkpoint despite being shot at point blank range in an incident identical to Tamari’s and was treated and sent to the hospital in a moderate condition.
Menachem Ordman, 33, a father of five from Mevo Dotan, described his near-death experience in an interview with Galei Tzahal on Wednesday.
On Wednesday afternoon, nearly the whole country was the target of a terrorist strike.
In the attack on Tuesday between the Israeli settlements of Hermesh and Mevo Dotan, close to the Arab community of Ya’abad, three soldiers were also shot.
At the Efes Junction, Ordman was shot while on the phone and standing next to his car, while the troops were hurt while seated inside an army vehicle.
Ordman stated that he was seated in his car when the terrorists’ vehicle approached him in the interview on Wednesday.
“When they started firing heavily, I wasn’t immediately aware that I was still alive.
I could clearly see a gun barrel being pointed directly at me.
Ordman said that he was successful in returning fire, causing the terrorists to flee the scene.
He stated that he will likely be released from the hospital on Thursday following surgery to remove shrapnel from his arms.
I will have surgery today to remove the shrapnel from my bullet-wounded arms, and God willing, I will be freed tomorrow.
Ordman reiterated his demand that Judea and Samaria be the focus of a significant counterterrorism campaign by the government.
“I’ve already witnessed death in front of my eyes; they opened fire on me when I was close to the automobile from a point-blank distance. We must strike first to complete this saga.
Ordman was scheduled to sign a contract to serve as the security coordinator for yesterday.
