Police suspect the attack was an attempted act of terror

A hunting rifle ?

Nope…… Twere a shotty like we thought.

Scroll through for the updates.

Unidentified assailants fired at an Israeli car leaving the West Bank settlement of Ma’ale Shomron on Saturday.   No injuries were reported, but damage was caused to the car.

The police took the driver’s statement, and have launched an investigation. According to an initial inquiry, the shooter used a hunting rifle.   The fire appeared to have come from the direction of the nearby village of Azzun.

A hunting rifle ?

This ?

A hunting rifle ?


From the grouping and almost complete lack of penetration, it looks like a .17 (or at best a .22) on full auto, but at half-power with frangible loads, or what may be more likely, a shotty with a couple of garbage shells.   Both at fairly close range too.

But either way, from the outcome, some peace-loving MooseLimb Quranimal thankfully can’t shoot fer schmitte.

Hit the window and the news report would be completely different.


Updates via Israel National News / Arutz Sheva.

1. A shotgun wielding terrorist attacked a vehicle at the gates of Maale Shomron in Samaria on Shabbat ; Miraculously no one was hurt.

2. IDF forces went house to house in the Arab village of Azzun in search of a terrorist who fired on an Israeli vehicle ; Shots reported.

As of this update — 1900 Eastern 24 December / 0100 in Israel…… It is currently unknown whether IDF forces found the terrorist during the search.


I’m STILL surprised the media didn’t come out and say “Evil scary-looking assault weapon opens fire by itself ; Targets Teh Eeeeevil Jooooooooooos riding in an evil-fossil-fuel-powered evil SUV.”

Gee…… I STILL sound a tad bitter there.

I wonder why ?
