Two Israelis were lightly hurt Saturday when Palestinians hurled stones at their vehicles on the road near the Palestinian West Bank village of Husan, close to the Etzion Bloc settlements.

One of the injured was treated by a medical team at the scene, and the other was evacuated to a nearby hospital, Israel Radio reported.

Earlier Saturday, a Palestinian woman was arrested after she pulled out a knife and headed toward a Border Police force in the flashpoint West Bank city of Hebron.

The troops identified her intentions, drew their weapons and called on the woman to halt. The suspect came to a sudden stop without any shots fired, and threw the knife to the floor.

No injuries were reported in the incident, which took place at the Tomb of the Patriarchs, a site considered holy to both Jews and Muslims.

The woman, who is reportedly a resident of Hebron, was taken for questioning by security forces.
