Palestinian agitators have purportedly been using laser pointers recently to blind Israeli drivers, local news website 0404 reported on Monday.

At least three such “laser attacks” have occurred on different routes in the West Bank, according to the report. During the latest incident, Palestinians from a village near Nablus used a green laser light to target one vehicle.

Israeli drivers said the lights severely hamper their vision and ability to safely operate their vehicles.

“You’re suddenly struck with a flash of light [aimed] at your eyes and it’s incredibly dangerous. High beams from an oncoming car are disruptive; so imagine what it’s like to have a laser beam directed right at your eyes,” one driver said.
