Infuriated by alleged ongoing bullying of her daughter, a 39-year-old woman entered a school in Yokne’am on Friday and pistol-whipped two sixth-grade schoolgirls with the butt of her husband’s handgun.
Police say the woman hid the weapon in her purse and entered the school without arousing suspicions.
After identifying the two girls whom she accused of bullying her daughter sitting in a classroom, the woman allegedly pulled out the gun and began beating them, while shouting that they “would not live to see another day.”
The gun was loaded, Afula police say, but the magazine fell out of the weapon during the incident.
The school’s principal and a parent who happened on the scene disarmed the woman and called the police. She was arrested and taken to Afula police station for questioning.
The girls received on the scene treatment by Magen David Adom paramedics before being taken to the Rambam Medical Center in Haifa. Doctors say they suffered light injuries.
