"I was just at the exit from Karmei Tzur on my way to Route 60, when I see a masked terrorist in front of me, shooting at me with a weapon," Gillis said. "I saw the terrorist clearly. I immediately drove toward Gush Etzion Junction where I alerted security forces, who started scanning (the area). It's a bad feeling, this thing is a very serious event. I thank the almighty; a miracle happened here."

This was the second terrorism attack in a 24-hour period, as on Friday night a man attempted to run over soldiers at a vehicle checkpoint near Ofra in the West Bank. He then exited the vehicle with a knife in his hand, attempting to stab the soldiers. They shot and severely wounded the attacker. No one else was hurt.
