Car thief does his bit for Mideast truce

July 17 2003 at 02:48AM

Jerusalem - An Israeli woman has told how a Palestinian car thief changed her tyre after a puncture left her stranded at night on a West Bank road.

"I felt lost standing next to my vehicle, south of Hebron, not knowing what to do and fearing the worst," Guishra Schwartz told the Ma'ariv newspaper on Wednesday.

"Suddenly a Palestinian came out of the shadows and offered to help. He got out of a vehicle he said he had stolen in Beersheva (southern Israel), and I was terrified," Schwartz said.

"But he immediately told me not to worry and started changing the wheel, explaining that it was his duty to help Israelis because of the truce," she said.

On June 29, four radical Palestinian factions announced a suspension of anti-Israeli attacks. - Sapa-AFP
