Palestinian rogues have begun hurling glass bottles filled with paint at buses and other Israeli vehicles with the purpose of blinding the drivers and causing them to crash, Israel’s 0404 news website reported on Tuesday.

According to the report, one attack occurred overnight Monday shortly before 2:00 a.m. when a bus traveling on Route 270 from Jerusalem to the West Bank settlement of Ofra was attacked with a Molotov Cocktail, stones and these “paint bombs.”

The Molotov cocktail failed to ignite, but the assailants scored direct hits on the bus with the stones and paint.

The paint attacks have been increasing across Judea and Samaria, 0404 said. In most incidents the attackers aim primarily for a car’s windshield, in order to block the driver’s vision and cause them to lose control of the vehicle.
