Bus drivers said attacked near Jerusalem-area settlement

Two bus drivers required medical attention after being attacked by a gang of youths near the settlement of Givat Ze’ev, according to reports.

The drivers for the Elektra-Afikim bus company, which runs public lines to the settlement, had been idling at a rest area for buses near the settlement, just north of Jerusalem, when a group of young men began throwing stones and bottles at them, reports say.

Video from the scene shows a broken window at the back of one bus and police at the scene.

In response, Elektra-Afikim has canceled service between Jerusalem and the settlement for the night, according to the reports.
