JNS.org – Five American yeshiva students were attacked by a Palestinian mob throwing stones and Molotov cocktails when they got lost on their way to pray at the Cave of the Patriarchs in the West Bank city of Hebron.

Two of the five students were slightly injured on their faces from the stones and broken glass. But the group was saved when a Palestinian resident of Hebron offered them shelter from the mob and called the police.

“I heard shouts outside, I left my house and saw the five Jews frantically leaving their car, which was attacked by stones,” Hebron resident Faiz Abu Hamadiah, 51, told the Israeli news websiteNRG.

Amid Ongoing Terror Surge, ‘Mi Shebeirach’ Prayer for Israeli Security Forces Updated to Include Police

The wording of the “Mi Shebeirach” prayer for members of Israeli security forces has officially been updated to include police...

“They were very pressured, one was injured and bleeding from his face. I calmed them down,” said Hamadiah. “I told them in Hebrew that it will be okay, I gave them water, and I helped the injured man. I told them they were safe in my house. Immediately afterward they called the police, and I sent teenagers to call the army to take them to the checkpoint.”

According to a spokesman for the Hebron Jewish community, the Israel Defense Forces used to have a checkpoint at the entryway to the Palestinian section of the city, but recently handed it over to Palestinian security forces.
