Jewish Resident Suffers Fractured Skull in Arab Rock Attack

( A resident of Yitzhar was wounded Thursday evening when Palestinian Authority Arabs threw a large rock at a car just outside the Samaria village. The rock hit his head as he sat in the back seat of the vehicle, next to his two children.

The man suffered a head injury and lost blood. IDF medics rushed him to Beilinson hospital. It was later determined that his wounds include a fractured skull, which required surgery, which was reported as successful. The children were unhurt in the attack.

Jewish residents of Samaria explained that since the Huwarra checkpoint was opened as a “good-will gesture” to the PA, Arab traffic has flooded the junction near Yitzhar. Terrorists have been known to take advantage of the slow traffic to pick out Israeli-owned vehicles and target them easily.

Time after time

Samaria Local Authority head Gershon Mesika called on the IDF to take action. “It's ridiculous that Jews are wounded in the same place time after time. Rocks can kill. The security apparatus needs to take strong action against these acts of terror,” he said following the attack.

The attack was the second to cause injury on Thursday. Earlier in the day an Israeli bus took a wrong turn in Hevron and was quickly surrounded by PA Arabs, who pelted it with rocks. One woman was wounded, and others suffered shock.

Also on Thursday, terrorists hurled two firebombs at an Israeli-owned car in the Binyamin region. No injuries were reported. Terrorists hurled heavy stones at an Israel-owned car north of Jerusalem, near Pisgat Ze'ev; no injuries were reported, but the vehicle was damaged.
