April 13 2011-Militant Islam Monitor-An Israeli woman driving out of the town of Maaleh Levonah in Samaria was ambushed by Arabs with vehicles bearing PA license plates. She managed to escape however and made her way to the town of Eli where the local police spokesman described the attack as "very grave". Such attacks take place frequently in the area often carried out by local Arabs. The woman's late son escaped a Hamas kidnapping attempt at the nearby Eli Junction in 2007 and was able to help the IDF identify and capture the would be kidnappers.
According to Israel National News:
"She had just driven out of Maaleh Levona and began heading toward Ariel, to see her son, when she encountered a vehicle with Palestinian Authority license plates apparently trying to carry out a U-turn in a bend in the road. Two Arabs were standing outside the vehicle. They motioned to her, inviting her to drive past them.
Something seemed wrong, however, and Malkah decided to wait for the vehicle to complete its U-turn.
At that point the two Arabs approached her vehicle and tried to clamber onto it. "I started driving and they started pelting me with rocks and at the same time, the Palestinian car started ramming me several times and tried to knock me off the road," she told Arutz Sheva.
Mahon managed to drive away and to press the distress button in her car. The IDF contacted her and asked her to drive to Eli, where she underwent initial IDF questioning about the event. A representative of the Judea and Samaria police was also present.
The attackers apparently fled to the nearby village of Sinjel."
