Masked Arab prepares to hurl stones at Israeli security forces, March 2010 (archive)

Arab terrorist attacks are once again rising on the roads in Judea and Samaria.

More than a dozen attacks have been recorded each day this week, with attackers on Thursday afternoon aiming at an Israeli bus near the Gush Etzion town of Tekoa. No one was physically injured but the bus sustained damage in the attack.


There were 16 stoning attacks recorded over a seven-hour period, many causing damage and all carried out with the intent to murder their victims.

Between 1 pm and 8 pm on Thursday, Israeli travelers were targeted in Al-Kharf, A-Tur (Jerusalem), Beituniya, Bethlehem, Bil’in, El Aroub, Horon, Karmei Tzur, Nabi Salih, Tapuach and Tekoa.

Three of the attacks took place within an hour’s time; two in Samaria and one near the terrorist hotbed village of El Aroub, in Gush Etzion. No one was physically injured, but a number of Israeli vehicles sustained damage.
