El-Roi Kapah, who was shot and wounded in a Palestinian drive-by shooting at the Tekoa Junction last Sunday, has been released from Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

The 35-year-old Kapah had been in serious condition with a gunshot wound to his upper body.

His daughters Rachel and Avigail, ages nine and 14, were lightly injured by shrapnel.

According to the Israel Defense Forces, the Palestinian terrorist opened fire from a passing vehicle at the victims’ car on a highway about 9 miles south of Jerusalem.

The terrorist was captured in Bethlehem several hours later after barricading himself inside a mosque. He was named as Amar al-Najjar, 26, a Hamas operative from Hebron who was previously jailed in Israel.
