 The hero who opened the door of the shot bus with recruits

The Yediot Ahronot newspaper published an interview with Ephraim Miller, the man who rescued Kfir Brigade recruits from a bus in the Jordan Valley that had been shot down by terrorists.

Miller's father, Shlomo, head of the Itamar settlement, was killed by Palestinian terrorists 19 years ago.

Miller arrived on the scene within minutes of the shelling.

Miller says: “I took out my gun and surveyed the area. Shouts of “Terrorist attack! Terrorist attack!” The bus was riddled with bullets. There was no driver, the bus rolled slowly to the side of the road. From there they shouted: Stop the bus!” There was a burning smell coming from the bus, I was afraid that it would explode. I tried to open the doors through the driver's window, but couldn't. I ran around the bus and opened it with the emergency handles. Then I inspected the bus to make sure that no one was left on it, and reported the incident to the security forces.
