Arabs attempted Thursday to kidnap an IDF soldier traveling home on leave, sources told Arutz Sheva.
The soldier, who is serving in the IDF’s Givati Brigade, said the kidnapping attempt occurred at Har Keren Junction in southern Israel. A vehicle with dark windows stopped beside the soldier and its passengers offered him a ride.
When the soldier ignored their offers, they exited the vehicle and tried to force him into it. In response, the soldier cocked his weapon and another citizen arrived to try to block their vehicle.
The suspects then escaped the scene.
