The Israeli man came under fire at around 12:45am while driving between Ofraim and the village of Abud.


He was lightly wounded in his face from glass shards but was able to continue driving until he reached a nearby military post.


There, he was given initial treatment by the IDF soldiers and later a team of MDA paramedics took him to the Sheba Medical Center in Tel HaShomer for further treatment.


On Wednesday night, fire was opened at an Israeli car in the same area, near Dayr 'Abu Mash'al and Beit El. No one was hurt but damage was caused to the vehicle.
