A mob of dozens of Palestinian Authority rock-throwers injured five Jews on the road from Tekoa, in eastern Gush Etzion, to Jerusalem Tuesday morning. At least one of the victims was evacuated by ambulance, and his condition was described as good.
The mob, which included women and children, smashed windshields with large rocks in an effort to cause fatal accidents. Six cars sustained damage.
One driver said he lost control of his vehicle but managed to keep from crashing and from hitting the attackers.
Israeli soldiers arrived at the scene and dispersed the attackers.
