While the UN devotes its human rights operations to the demonization of the democratic state of Israel above all others and condemns the United States more often than the vast majority of non-democracies around the world, the voices of real victims around the world must be heard.

An Israeli man came under fire Sunday night while driving near the West Bank Settlement of Dolev, north of Jerusalem, but escaped uninjured.

His car was struck by at least one bullet, and he was treated for shock after the attack.

The victim, described by the Magen David Adom emergency service as an Israeli man in his 50s, managed to escape and continued driving to the settlement of Dolev, where he was treated for shock by paramedics.

Israel Defense Forces said security forces had launched a manhunt for the perpetrator.

The attack comes amid an upsurge of violent attacks on Israelis by Palestinians in the West Bank over the last several months.

Last week, a Palestinian teenager stabbed to death Dafna Meir outside her home in the Hebron-area settlement of Otniel. The attacker was named as 16-year-old Morad Bader Abdullah Adais, and was apprehended by security forces the following day in a nearby Palestinian village.

A day later, an Israeli woman was stabbed by a Palestinian man in the West Bank settlement of Tekoa, just south of Jerusalem. The woman, 30-year-old, Michal Froman was moderately wounded. Her attacker was shot and apprehended.

The Dolev area, which is near the Palestinian city of Ramallah, has been the scene of attacks in the past.

In July 2015, a 25-year-old Israeli man, Danny Gonen, was shot dead by Palestinian terrorists at a natural spring just outside the settlement.
