Israeli Buses, Trains Targeted With Paint, Rocks in East Jerusalem, West Bank Attacks
Israeli public transportation vehicles were attacked by Arabs in east Jerusalem and the West Bank on Friday, in addition to an attempted car-ramming attack near the Israeli settlement of Ofra, also in the West Bank.
According to Israeli news website 0404 news, one bus was pelted with stones on the cross-West Bank Route 60 highway, near the Karmei Tzur settlement.
A few hours later, an iconic green Egged bus was attacked also near Karmei Tzur, this time with a bottle of white paint smashed on a passenger window.
And in east Jerusalem, the light rail came under a hail of stones in the mostly Arab Shuafat neighborhood of east Jerusalem. One of the train’s windows was smashed.
No casualties were reported in any of the incidents.
In Friday’s car-ramming attack, a Palestinian woman attempted to ram her car into a Border Police patrol stationed near Ofra. Israeli security personnel at the scene were able to intercept the West Bank woman and shot her dead. No casualties were reported.
Israel has been facing months of almost daily terrorist attacks against security personnel and civilians, especially in the West Bank. Many of the terrorists have been killed on the scene of the attack, and some have been subdued and apprehended.
