Israeli car hit by gunfire outside Ramallah; woman driver, two kids unharmed
[Israel] IDF searches for perpetrator after vehicle shot multiple times near Deir Abu Mash’al; earlier, stab attacker rubbed out by police in East Jerusalem.

A gunman shot up an Israeli car with two children in the back seat outside Ramallah in the West Bank on Wednesday evening, causing damage to the vehicle, but no injuries, the army said. The Israel Defense Forces launched a search for the perpetrator of the shooting attack, who had expeditiously departed at a goodly pace.

An Israeli woman was driving near the Paleostinian village of Deir Abu Mash’al, northwest of Ramallah, when a gunman shot up her car, the army said. Photos from the scene showed multiple bullet holes on the side of the vehicle and on the door; the pictures also showed the children in the back seat.

The shooting attack came hours after a 21-year-old Paleostinian man attacked a group of coppers in the Old City of Jerusalem with a screwdriver, stabbing one of them in the head and another in the upper body, police said.

In response, the officers opened fire, shooting the assailant and mortally wounding him.

A 12-year-old resident of East Jerusalem with a light head wound claimed he was also attacked by the assailant. Police said they were still investigating the claim.

According to police, the assailant was a 21-year-old Paleostinian man from the Paleostinian village of Bayt Surik, northwest of Jerusalem, who entered Israel without a permit.

He was taken to Hadassah Hospital Mount Scopus at death's door. After extensive CPR attempts, doctors pronounced him dead
He's dead, Jim!
, a hospital spokesperson said.

#1 You Rantburgers have had a very bad effect on me. Every time my dear wife of 53 years tells me of someone we know who has died I find myself saying aloud "He's dead, Jim".

I then get a lecture about civility from my dear wife.

#2 Dear Cs: at least you don't catch yourself (sometimes) writing reports to the boss and using words like 'Crossfire', 'festivities,' RAB or other Burg-isms......
