An Israeli driver was injured when his car overturned after being attacked by Palestinians throwing rocks in the West Bank.

The driver, who was hit in the head in the Saturday night attack near Gush Etzion, was being treated at Hadassah Hospital for internal bleeding. His wife and baby were lightly injured.

Also Saturday, a Palestinian resident of Shuafat, an Arab neighborhood in eastern Jerusalem, was shot and seriously wounded by Border Police who were firing back at him, according to the Times of Israel. The gunman, 20, reportedly had been firing at homes in the Jewish eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Zeev on Friday and Saturday.

He was taken for surgery at Hadassah Hospital.
