Gaza Terrorist Attack on Farmer in Southern Israel
Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists attacked in the southern Negev Eshkol region on Thursday morning, firing at a Jewish farmer driving a tractor. The tractor's windshield was shattered but the driver was uninjured.
Working in a field near Kibbutz Nir Oz, the farmer's reflexes were fast nevertheless, and he moved quickly. Dropping to the ground, he ducked behind his tractor -- a move that saved his life.
The farmer was subsequently rescued by Israeli soldiers who returned the terrorists' gunfire and evacuated him to safety.
PA terrorist sniper fire along the Gaza border is not new, but the phenomenon has been increasing in recent months
