An Israeli bus driver was lightly injured when rocks were thrown at his vehicle on Sunday, while driving in the West Bank.

Shortly afterwards, IDF soldiers arrested a Palestinian believed to be responsible for the incident in which the bus windshield was shattered, the army said.

The 31-year-old driver had injuries to his chest and cuts to his face from broken glass, the Magen David Adom rescue service said. He was taken to Hadassah Hospital Mount Scopus for treatment.

The incident occurred on Route 60, north of Ramallah.

A group of soldiers that had been positioned nearby quickly responded to the rock-throwing and arrested the suspect, according to the army.

He was brought in for questioning.
