A jeep full of Israeli soldiers was chasing the truck of the Fourth Wave. Suddenly, just after Saleh Amer, who had tried to get onto the moving truck was shot dead, old man Abu Mousa ran into the path of the jeep yelling, “Where are my sons? Where are my sons?” By doing so he had risked his life and broken the curfew. The truck driver took advantage of the interruption, sped away and saved the lives of all those riding the truck.
