Yesh Atid’s Haim Yellin was on his way back from paying a condolence visit to family of Shlomit Krigman, stabbed to death earlier this week, when a building block was thrown at his vehicle.

Yesh Atid MK Haim Yellin’s car was pelted with rocks on Thursday after paying a condolence visit to the family of terror victim Shlomit Krigman in the settlement of Shadmot Mehola in the Jordan Valley.

Yellin, who was in the car at the time, was not hurt, but his car was damaged.

After leaving the shiva in Shadmot Mehola, Yellin saw a man standing on a hill on Route 505. The MK said the man threw a building block at the car, trying to shatter the windshield. Yellin sped up, and the block hit the back window instead.

“While driving I suddenly noticed a young man lifting a building block and trying to throw it on a bus transporting children that was driving in the other direction,” Yellin recounted. “I sped in an effort to run him over so he won’t hurt the bus, and then he immediately lifted another block and aimed it in my direction. Since I was driving at high speed, it only hit the back of the car.”

He kept driving towards the Tapuach Junction, where he recounted the incident to police forces who started looking for the perpetrator.

“This time it was a rock and not a rocket,” said Yellin, the former head of the Eshkol Regional Council, who visits bereaved families every week.

“We must not stop living our lives because of a terrorist who throws stones, shoots at us or tries to stab us. We must continue to hit back against terrorism with all our might, embrace the families of the victims but not abandon the diplomatic agenda.”

Krigman, 23, was stabbed earlier this week by two terrorists who infiltrated the settlement of Beit Horon in the Binyamin region of the West Bank. She died of her wounds two days ago.
