Four Arrested After Two-Year-Old Israeli Girl Injured in Jerusalem Stoning Attack
JNS.org – Two-year-old Israeli girl Avigail Ben-Zion suffered a moderate head wound on Thursday after her mother’s car was stoned as it entered the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood in Jerusalem. Ben-Zion’s mother and her two brothers were unharmed.
Security forces arrested four Arab residents of the village of Sur Baher in eastern Jerusalem in connection to the case. The police believe that the four suspects, ages 15 to 20, are part of a terror cell that has been operating in the city.
“Over the past few months we have been seeing an increase in violence by Palestinians in several neighborhoods in Jerusalem, especially in the form of rock and Molotov cocktail attacks,” a senior police officer told Israel Hayom on Thursday.
