Arab terrorists were out in force on Wednesday, attacking travelers along the roads and rails of Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem.

By 10 pm, there were at least 21 reports of deadly Arab ambushes with rock attacks and firebombs aimed at Israeli vehicles, according to the Hebrew-language 0404 website.


A bus traveling towards Tekoa in eastern Gush Etzion came under attack by Arab road terrorists who hurled rocks and firebombs at the driver and passengers. The window of the bus was shattered but miraculously no one was physically injured.

“They hit the bus with a hail of stones,” one of the passengers told the 0404 website, “then hurled a bottle of paint at the windshield of the driver.”

The Jerusalem Light Rail also came under attack Wednesday, with Arabs in the northern neighborhood of Shuafat again hurling rocks at the cars as the train passed through the area.

None of the passengers were physically injured though a number were traumatized, and the train was damaged in the attack. Nearly half of the cars in the Light Rail fleet are out of commission due to intifada attacks by Jerusalem-area Arabs, most of them in the Shuafat neighborhood.

  1. No more service to the PA areas. mount cameras on the trains and increase military presence to protect Israeli citizens. Their intent is not to wound but to kill. throwing pain to cause a major bus accident proves this. Yes the world will complain but it is not their citizens being hurt.

  2. All Israeli Jewish citizens must be armed in order to respond to these deadly attacks by Palestinians and so called Israeli arabs. They must answer fire with fire . Bibi's government is too weak to neutralize these hoodlums. Only firepower will put an end to these attacks.
