Palestinian-hurled rocks hurt baby


JERUSALEM (JTA) — An Israeli baby girl was injured when Palestinians threw rocks at the car in which she was riding.

The year-old Jewish girl was taken to Hadassah University Medical Center in Ein Kerem on Thursday after the rock crashed through the window of the car as it was driving through the southern Hebron Hills and hit her in the head.

Four Palestinians also were arrested for throwing rocks at Israeli cars driving near Tekoa, the army said.

Palestinian rock throwers also damaged two buses — in Hebron and in Karne Zur — on Thursday, according to the Israeli army. A woman driving near Ni’lin also was injured by Palestinian-hurled rocks.

Also Thursday, a Palestinian from the West Bank village of Umm a-Tim said Jewish settlers from the Gilad Farm settlement set fire to four of their cars, Ynet reported. Palestinians and settlers from the two areas also had clashed Tuesday, according to reports.
