Three Israeli citizens were lightly injured in two stone-throwing incidents in the West Bank on Friday.
Two people were hurt on Route 443 near Modi’in, after Palestinians hurled stones at their car. They were cut by shattered glass from their car’s windows.
In a separate stone throwing incident, another Israeli civilian was lightly injured near the Al-Fawar refugee camp in the southern Hebron Hills. The man was hit in the stomach and was treated at the scene by a military medic.
On Thursday, the IDF arrested 10 Palestinians on suspicion of involvement in stone-throwing that caused a major accident near the West Bank settlement of Ariel. The attack left a toddler fighting for her life on Friday.
“This is a terror attack like any other,” a senior IDF source described the accident to a Channel 10 News reporter. “The rocks were thrown by Palestinians from one of the nearby villages. We have seen a 50-percent upsurge in rock-throwing incidents since the announcement of [US President Barack] Obama’s visit to the country,” the source added
On Friday morning, four Palestinians were spotted once again throwing stones at Israeli vehicles near the site of Thursday’s accident, according to local residents. There were no injuries or damage reported.
MK Moti Yogev of the Jewish Home party commented on the different stone throwing incidents and said that “Israel must take stronger measures against Palestinian rioters in Judea and Samaria.”
