An Israeli contractor from Ashdod suffered serious wounds Sunday morning in a shooting attack in the Gaza Strip.

Moshe Buchris was reported to be in critical condition at Soroka Hospital in Beersheba, where he was taken by helicopter.

Buchris was shot by two assailants at close range while standing by his truck, waiting to pick up workers.

Although wounded in the head, and hand, he managed to drive his car more than 18 miles to Gaza City, where a local resident alerted an army patrol.
