An Israeli man in his 40s was hospitalized with moderate injuries Saturday night, after his car was hit by a Molotov cocktail in the West Bank south of Jerusalem.

The IDF dispatched troops to the area — near the Palestinian village of Husan near the Betar Illit settlement.

The driver, whose car was also hit by stones, received treatment from Magen David Adom and was taken to Hadassah Hospital at Ein Kerem for further treatment.

The Molotov cocktail set the car ablaze, Channel 2 reported.

An MDA paramedic said the victim was stable, but had a wound to the head and second degree burns.

There were no immediate arrests.

Unconfirmed reports also said shots were fired at the West Bank settlement of Kedumim, near Nablus. There were no immediate reports of injuries, and IDF troops were dispatched to the scene.
