Jewish Toddler Hurt by Rock-Throwing Palestinians

An Israeli toddler traveling in a car in the West Bank was injured by rocks thrown by masked Palestinians.

Dozens of Palestinians threw “rocks and heavy furniture” at passing Israeli cars at the Yitzhar Junction in the northern West Bank on Wednesday, the Israel Defense Forces told the Times of Israel.

Some of the rocks hit the car carrying the toddler, which led to the injuries. The toddler was taken to an Israeli hospital for treatment.

Three children also were injured Wednesday when Palestinians threw rocks at cars passing Wadi Joz in eastern Jerusalem, Israel Police said.
