Israeli woman seriously injured in West Bank by rocks hurled at her car

A woman in her 40s has been seriously injured near the West Bank settlement of Neve Tzuf after rocks were thrown at her car, the Magen David Adom ambulance service says.

The statement says medics are treating the driver — who is conscious — and taking her to Sheba Medical Center in Ramat Gan with a head injury.

The military says the victim is an Israeli citizen, and that forces are pursuing the suspects. Some Hebrew-language media reports say the victim lives in the settlement of Shilo and that two of her kids were in the car but unharmed.

There is no immediate word about the identity of the assailants, but Hebrew-language media indicates it is an apparent terror attack by Palestinians.
