Three women were treated for shock on Thursday morning when a robber used his firearm during a heist in a Taibeh bank. The robber escaped the scene with tens of thousands of shekels. Residents said of the incident "only in Taibeh can an armed robbery such as this take place. It's not the first time a bank is robbed here and every time they improve security, but still, another robbery took place today, gunshots and all. It's lucky no bystanders were hurt."
