JNS.org – A 69-year-old Japanese woman was injured Monday while she was touring with a group of visitors who were pelted with rocks from a roof near Saint Anne’s Church in Jerusalem, according to Israeli police.

The woman suffered light injuries and was taken to the Hadassah University Medical Center.

“I’m a tourist in Israel as part of a tour group of Japanese people who love Israel, I was very surprised by the stone-throwing attack,” said the wounded woman, the Jerusalem Post reported.

“At the time [of the attack] I was praying and I didn’t understand what had hit me,” she said.
