Bus drivers to strike after shooting attack near Beit El
In the wake of the shooting attack near the Jewish community of Beit El, drivers for the Egged transport company announced Sunday morning that they would strike over safety concerns.
On Saturday evening, Muslim terrorists attempted to murder Jews in a shooting attack at a bus traveling between Beit El and the Focus checkpoint, north of Jerusalem.
Four bullets were fired at the bus. The driver was lightly wounded by glass shrapnel.
“We won’t endanger ourselves. You go on this road, and you don’t see any security personnel there,” one driver said.
This is the fourth terror attack in the area over the past month. Some of the Muslim terrorists members of the cell behind the previous attacks have already been eliminated or captured.
