The son of Micheal Mark, who was killed Friday in the shooting attack in Southern Mount Hebron, recounted the moments of terror when he witnessed his father being shot to death.

The 15-year-old, Padilla said, "They fired at us from the left side of my sister, she was sitting on my left. Suddenly, Dad stopped moving and the car flipped over."The boy described how bystanders helped to rescue him and his 14-year-old sister from the car, when she was also facing serious injuries.

"The Arabs were able to open the door and get us out and put us in a car where nothing would happen to us in," the son stated in a Channel Two news broadcast.
