Israeli Supreme Court justice David Mintz narrowly escaped being lynched by three Arabs on Monday morning who blocked his vehicle and came towards him armed with hammers.

Israeli Police received a report of an Israeli resident driving in Samaria when his car was blocked by a Palestinian vehicle.

Mintz was leaving his home in the town of Dolev when the three men blocked him, then got out of their car and advanced towards him. He managed to drive away before any attack took place.

Last week, two Israelis were shot to death in their office at the Barkan Industrial Park in Samaria by a Palestinian coworker. The terrorist, Ashraf Na’alowa, has not been captured.

In July, a 60-year-old Israeli man from Ofra in Samaria was beaten by a team of Arab car-jackers.
