A violent car robbery has left Israel in mourning after an elderly man succumbed to his wounds on Thursday.

According to Arutz Sheva, the 70-year-old was discovered unconscious on the side of a road in Judea and Samaria by a passerby who rushed him to a nearby checkpoint. Despite desperate efforts by emergency personnel to resuscitate him through CPR and defibrillation, the gravely wounded man tragically passed away from his devastating injuries later that evening.

“We provided him with medical treatment, and after his heart resumed beating we evacuated him in a mobile ICU to the hospital, in serious condition and intubated,” Magen David Adom medic Shai Cohen told Arutz Sheva.

In the wake of the cold-blooded assault, IDF troops were seen entering the Arab town of Qalqilya to hunt for the perpetrators – only to be met with vicious rioters hurling rocks at them. It represents a searing reminder of the Palestinian Authority’s ongoing descent into chaos and lawlessness.

Lethal Palestinian rock attacks, vehicular ramming targeting soldiers, and raids against terror cells have unfortunately become commonplace in Judea and Samaria. Just last month, an Israeli officer was killed by fire in the same town of Qalqilya.

As the IDF s urgently works to locate the unconscionable criminals responsible, the nation unites in mourning for another life senselessly stolen. While the PA revels in such misery, Israel is left saying goodbye to an innocent family man who should have been enjoying his retirement in peace.

    They have no respect for each other, so why should they respect their elders.

    A person aged 70 years is far from ELDERLY! Especially these days. That man still had plenty of living to do!
