A father of five who was attacked by two Palestinian teens said he managed to shove his assailants out of his West Bank home before they could hurt his family.

Roi Harel was heading to army reserve duty in uniform at 5 a.m. Wednesday when the assailants attacked him with clubs and axes outside his home in the Eli settlement, then entered the premises, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

Harel was treated at a Jerusalem hospital for cuts to his head.
