Three Israelis were lightly hurt on Sunday evening when rocks were hurled at their car near the Beit Aryeh settlement in the central West Bank.

Magen David Adom paramedics treated the victims at the scene. A woman, 47, was evacuated to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva.

A large rock smashed through the windshield of the car close to the Palestinian village of al-Lubban al-Gharbi, just over the Green Line from several Tel Aviv suburbs in an area that has seen little of the violence that has rocked the country over the last several months.

The attack happened close to the scene of a car-ramming attack last Thursday, in which four Israel Defense Forces soldiers were injured and required hospital treatment.

Earlier Monday, 14 people were wounded in a car-ramming terror attack at the entrance to Jerusalem. A baby boy and a woman in her 70s were among those hurt when a Palestinian plowed his car into a crowd of people at a bus stop at the start of rush hour.
