During the course of the attack, the terrorist fired at Stern’s car as it was passing through Huwara, the same place were Hallel and Yagel Yaniv were murdered exactly three weeks previously. Stern returned fire, succeeding in injuring the terrorist despite having suffered a head injury himself. He then succeeded in making a makeshift tourniquet to stem his own bleeding. Stern’s wife, who was sitting in the car, suffered from shock but was not injured in the attack.
