Israeli Woman Seriously Injured by Rock Hurled Near Kfar Sava

Download PDF for this date

An Israeli woman was seriously injured in a rock-throwing attack Tuesday evening on the outskirts of Kfar Sava, an Israeli town just outside the West Bank.

Margared Rosner, 52, suffered brain damage. She was on the critical list, following surgery at Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikva.

The woman was riding in a taxi driven by her husband. A large rock, hurled from an orange grove alongside the road, crashed through the windshield, hitting her squarely on the head.

The attack occurred on the road between Kfar Sava and the West Bank town of Kalkilya.

It so infuriated Jewish settlers in the vicinity that they attacked the orange grove and uprooted a row of trees in revenge. It turned out later that the grove is owned by Jews. The embarrassed settlers have offered to pay for the damage.
