Stone Throwing Arabs Cause Car Crash, Critically Injuring 3 Year Old Girl, 3 Others
Palestinian Arab stone throwing at a road near the Jewish community of Ariel in Judea and Samaria led to a car crash that critically injured a 3-year-old girl and moderately injured her mother and her two other daughters, ages 4 and 6.
The crash happened as a result of a truck that veered off course and hit the mother’s car due to the Palestinians hurling stones at cars on the road,Yedioth Ahronoth reported.
The IDF and police are searching the area for the Palestinian stone hurlers.
“This is a terror attack like any other,” a senior IDF source told Channel 10 news in a report cited by the Times of Israel.
“The rocks were thrown by Palestinians from one of the nearby villages. We have seen a 50 percent upsurge in rock throwing incidents since the announcement of [U.S. President Barack] Obama’s visit to the country,” the source added.
