Jewish Settler Leader’s Wife Hurt in Car Crash Caused by Stone-Throwers

Six people, including the wife and three children of a leader of Israeli settlers, were wounded in an accident caused by Palestinians who hurled stones at their car.

Oriya Dagan, the wife of Yossi Dagan, head of the Regional Municipality of Samaria, and their children sustained minor injuries in the accident which occurred Friday afternoon in the West Bank while they were driving to Jerusalem, Channel 2 reported.

The family and two other passengers were driving to Jerusalem to spend Shabbat with Yossi Dagan, who is camped out in front of the residence of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in protest of what Dagan and other settler leaders perceive as the government’s weak response to what Netanyahu on Wednesday said was a “wave of terror” by Palestinians.

Several Israelis were injured on Thursday and Friday in attacks by Palestinians. Two attacks by Jewish radicals on Palestinians and Arabs also resulted in injuries. In Dimona, four Arabs were injured when a 17-year-old Jew stabbed them, inflicting minor to moderate wounds. In Netanya, a young Israeli Arab was beaten by a few Jews who shouted “death to Arabs.”

On Friday, six Palestinians, including a 15-year-old boy, were killed by Israeli security during two riots near Israel’s border with Gaza and in one stabbing near Hebron. Another Palestinian woman was shot at the central bus station of the northern city of Afula, reportedly after trying to carry out a stabbing attack against a soldier.
