A small baby became the next victim of terror early Tuesday evening after the vehicle in which he was traveling with his family came under a massive stoning attack in Judea.

The attack took place near the Palestinian Authority town of Halhul, located along Highway 60, between Kiryat Arba-Hebron and Gush Etzion, about a 30 minutes’ drive south of Jerusalem.


Palestinian Authority terrorists tried to kill Israeli motorists as they passed Halhul, hurling large rocks at windshields and hoping to either disable the vehicle so they could attack the drivers, or to sufficiently distract the driver so as to cause a fatal motor vehicle accident.

A number of Israeli-driven vehicles were damaged in the attacks, according to Hatzalah Without Borders, including one in which a couple and their two young children were traveling.

The rocks shattered a window, with multiple glass shards flying directly into the face of the nine-month-old infant boy strapped into his car seat in the back.

Emergency medical personnel evacuated the infant to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem for medical treatment.

About two and a half hours later, there was another stoning attack on an Israeli public bus on the same road. Palestinian Authority terrorists attacked Israeli drivers traveling the road between the bypass junction and an archaeological excavation in the area. No physical injuries were reported.

Three hours after that rash of attacks, Arab terrorists again began throwing rocks at an Israeli public bus, also on the Gush Etzion road (Highway 60) as the vehicle passed the Palestinian Authority town of Al Aroub. No one was physically injured on the bus, but the windshield was smashed, according to a report by Hatzalah Without Borders.
