Israeli Boy, 4, Injured in West Bank Rock Attack

A 4-year-old Israeli boy was injured after Palestinians threw rocks at cars near the West Bank city of Bethlehem.

The boy was evacuated to a local emergency medical clinic for treatment for injuries from flying shards of glass, according to reports.

The attack occurred on Highway 60 on the road to the Jewish communities in Gush Etzion, the site of several attacks on Jews in recent weeks.

Israeli soldiers were searching the area on Sunday for suspects in the rock attack, according to the Israel Defense Forces.
