I'm Safe, Thank God

Israeli moderately hurt in West Bank shooting

An Israeli driver was moderately wounded on Tuesday evening when Palestinians opened fire on his car near the central West Bank settlement of Shiloh, between Ramallah and Nablus.

According to initial reports, the Israeli was driving outside the outpost of Shvut Rachel at the time of the attack. He was immediately evacuated by heliocopter to hospital with arm wounds.

The driver was identified as a settler from the area en route from Shvut Rachel to Kida, an outpost that connects Shiloh to the Jordan Valley.

According to the report, the man drove through to Kida before summoning emergency help.

"I can confirm it was a terrorist attack," said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.

The Israel Defense Forces has cordoned off the area.

imho - the term 'settler' should be banished from news reporting until it loses its negative connotation (or until all non-native American inhabitants of the Americas are referred to as settlers).

Of course your safe. I wouldn't have thought it was you. You don't drive!
