An Israeli police officer was hurt on Tuesday in an Arab stoning attack in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Dahiyat al-Barid, on the outskirts of the capital. The Hatzolah emergency response service of Judea and Samaria reported that the police officer was treated for a minor leg wound.
Earlier in the day, an Arab terrorist hurled a firebomb at Egged Bus #140 as it traveled in Samaria between the Arab village of Hizme and the Jewish community of Adam, northwest of Jerusalem.
A passenger on the bus told the Hebrew-language 0404 website, “The firebomb (Molotov cocktail) was hurled … at the bus as it passed the Adam junction, but it didn’t do any damage.” The firebomb did, however, ignite a fire in the shrubbery at the side of the road. Firefighters extinguished the flames at the site.
A few hours later Arab terrorists attacked another bus at the same spot with a “paint bottle” – a bottle filled with thick, colored paint, intended to blind the driver as it shatters on impact, spreading a mess on the vehicle’s windows.
This time the attack failed: the terrorist’s aim was bad, and the bottle landed instead on the road, exploding its colorful contents on the highway instead.
