Miraculously, the woman survived the attack with a slight head wound. She was treated at the scene by medics from the Samaria division of Hatzalah Without Borders before being taken to a nearby hospital.
A second female driver was also attacked a few minutes later in the same spot, also by rock-throwing Palestinian Authority terrorists. No details were available on the second attack.
Highway 60 in Huwara has become a deadly site for Israeli Jews traveling to and from Samaria are forced to pass through the town because there is no bypass road.
This past weekend, a 20-year-old Israeli soldier was deliberately run over by an Arab terrorist, also in Huwara. The injured soldier was treated at the scene before being taken to nearby Beilinson Medical Center in nearby Petach Tikvah.
On March 19, a Palestinian Authority terrorist opened fire at Samaria resident David Stern and his wife Rachel as they were driving through Huwara. Stern, who was armed, managed to return fire despite his wounds, injuring the attacker.
On March 25, two Israeli soldiers were attacked by terrorists who opened fire at an IDF position on Highway 60 in Huwara. Both soldiers, in their twenties, were wounded in the attack. They were taken to Beilinson Medical Center in Petach Tikva.
Stern was seriously wounded but survived the attack along with his wife.
On February 26, two Jewish brothers from an Israeli town in Samaria were shot at point-blank range and killed by a terrorist while their vehicle was stuck in traffic on Highway 60 in Huwara.
