Arabs hurled rocks at Israel buses in the Old City of Jerusalem twice in several hours Thursday and injured 10 people, one day after one or two possible terrorist attacks that sent two men to the hospital with serious wounds from separate stabbing attacks.
The second rock attack on a bus at the Shechem Gate, also known as the Damascus Gate, sent a 14-year-old boy to the hospital with serious wounds. A previous barrage of rocks on three Egged buses took place nearby and caused injuries to several people.
Police have not stated if Wednesday’s knife attacks were carried out by terrorists. One of the victims told a medic that his attacker was an Arab who attacked out of nationalist motives.
The police spokesman was not available for comment Thursday.
