10 Shekel Coin Stops Bullet – Hanukkah Miracle

A couple was injured by gun fire last night as they drove their car on the road 557 near the Arab village Tulkarem. The elderly couple, Shaul and Rachel Nir, are residents of the Jewish Quarter of the Old City, Jerusalem. They were visiting their grandchildren in the Yishuv Avnei Heifetz in the Shomron (Samaria).
Bullet stopped by Israeli Coin
Security forces arrived at the scene shortly after the attack and found Shaul critically wounded, and his wife suffered light wounds. The police investigating the incident found a ten shekel coin, shown in the photo, dented and having prevented a bullet from injuring the couple possibly more gravely. A real life Hanukkah miracle story for today.
