An Arab woman was injured on Sunday while driving in the Benyamin region when her vehicle was attacked by rocks, apparently by Arab terrorists who misidentified her car due to its yellow (Israeli) license plates.
The victim was evacuated to an Israeli hospital in Jerusalem for treatment after initially being treated at the scene by Magen David Adom emergency response medics.
The medic told TPS that during a routine trip from Neve Tzuf to Modi’in, near the Arab village of Deir Nizam, he noticed a rock flying from the cliff towards the road, smashing the windshield of a vehicle that was several vehicles ahead.
“We gave her first aid, notified the emergency center and summoned an ambulance,” he recounted.
The medic noted that the incident comes after a flaming Molotov cocktail was thrown at the community of Neve Tsuf from the same village on Saturday, “with the aim of burning its houses on its residents.”
The incident is one of multiple such attacks that took place this weekend in Judea and Samaria.
As of mid-December 2021, Arab terrorists carried out 6,633 terrorist attacks in Judea and Samaria alone, of which 61 were shootings, 18 were stabbings, 1,022 were fire bombings (Molotov cocktail attacks), and 5,532 were rock-throwing attacks. The figures represent a sharp increase over the numbers in recent years, according to data recently published by the IDF.
