IDF soldier wounded by explosive on road near Jerusalem


(JTA) — An Israeli soldier was moderately wounded by an explosive device thrown at a security checkpoint near Jerusalem.

The soldier injured in the Wednesday night attack on the Tunnel Bypass Road was taken to Hadassah Medical Center, and the terrorist fled the scene, Ynet reported.

A few hours earlier, a toddler and her father were lightly wounded after assailants threw stones at two vehicles on Route 45 near Jerusalem. The IDF is searching for the perpetrators of both attacks.

Five people were lightly wounded Tuesday evening when assailants hurled stones at a bus and two cars in the At-Tur neighborhood of eastern Jerusalem.

Four of those wounded were teens, including three Jordanians.
