Palestinian militants rescue Israeli family

A wanted member of the Al Aqsa Martyr’s Brigade and the leader of paramilitary Fatah Tanzim saved an Israeli family from a lynching in a refugee camp south of Ramallah, Monday.

“We were scared for our lives,” said Hannah Dickman, whose family accidentally drove into the Kalandia refugee camp north of Jerusalem on Monday afternoon. Angry Palestinians surrounded the vehicle and youths threw rocks at it. Palestinians, including an al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade member wanted by the IDF, rescued the Israeli family and helped them get to safety.


A Palestinian identified as Mahmoud, who is wanted by the IDF for his membership in the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade terror group, said that when he saw the youths throwing stones at the car, he went to see if he could help the trapped family, Yediot Aharonot reported. “I tried to protect them. We weren’t armed, but residents of the camp know us, and follow our instructions. I ordered them away, and then called my friends.”

The family was handed over to apprehensive IDF soldiers a few hours later and are now safely home.
