Gil Bismot, the head of Zaka in Judea and Samaria, said that several bullet holes riddled the car which Meir Chai was killed in a terror attack on Thursday afternoon. "I'm not a ballistics expert, but an automatic weapon seems to have been involved," Bismot told The Jerusalem Post. "At first, emergency services thought the incident involved a road accident. When our volunteers and security personnel arrived on the scene, it became clear that this was a shooting attack," he added.
