An Israeli bus driver was injured Sunday night in a terror attack near the Home Center intersection in Kiryat Haim, a suburb of the northern port city of Haifa.
The driver appeared to have been hit in the face – the area of his nose and elsewhere bloodied — by a rock thrown at him by one of the attackers, according to the Hebrew-language 0404 website, after the windows of the bus door were smashed with a crowbar.
The driver said a Golf car pulled up, the driver in the hands of Arabs, and tried to sideswipe his bus, attempting to force him off the road. From this car, the rock was thrown.
A passenger on the bus added that an Arab bashed in the windows on the door with a crowbar.
The car that tried to run the bus off the road managed to escape. Police officers set out to search for the attackers.
