WATCH: Israeli shoots his way out of attempted lynching

A Jewish father of eight was returning home from grocery shopping in Judea and Samaria when he unknowingly drove into a riot in which hundreds of Arabs were throwing rocks at passing vehicles near the village of Huwara in Samaria on Thursday.

The Israeli escaped a lynching by firing his weapon at the mob as it surrounded his vehicle and pelted it with stones. Two Arabs, seen in the below video, were reportedly injured, either from his gunfire or from gunfire by IDF soldiers, who rushed to the area.

The damage to the vehicle of the victim of the near-lynching can be seen in the video below in which the damage is summarized by a Hebrew-speaker.
