A Muslim Arab terrorist was eliminated on Thursday after an Israeli driver opened fire on a mob of some 200 Arabs rioting and attempting to murder Jews by hurling rocks at passing Israeli vehicles near Huwara in Samaria
The Israeli driver felt that his life was in danger and did not fire directly at the group of terrorists— he fired the shots into the air.
The PA health services stated that two were wounded during the shooting, which was confirmed by the IDF shortly thereafter.
The first terrorist was identified as Moataz Hussein Taya, 23, from the village of Bita, who was critically injured and succumbed to his wounds moments later.
The second terrorist was identified as an AP photographer, who suffered moderate wounds after being shot in the arm.
The IDF arrived shortly after the shooting to prevent more casualties and disperse the riot.
