Palestinian Authority Arabs Monday morning hurled rocks at motorists on Route 443, which connects Modi’in with Jerusalem, despite two checkpoints on the highway that also serves as alternate route to Highway 1 to Jerusalem.
No injuries were reported.
The Supreme Court three years ago ordered that the government open the road to Palestinian Authority drivers, ruling that security could be provided without prohibiting them from using the road. Terrorist attacks killed six people on Route 443 during the height of the Second Intifada, also known as the Oslo War, and the roads was closed to the PA in 2002.Jewish Press News Briefs
