Palestinian Arab stone throwers attacked two young Jewish worshippers on their way to the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron early Saturday evening.
One of the victims had his nose broken in the assault and was transfered to a hospital in Jerusalem. The Arabs also attacked the Israeli soldiers who arrived to extract the two youth.
According to local reports, Arabs in the Hebron area also sexually assaulted two Jewish high school girls on Thursday.
Representatives of Hebron's Jewish community warned of a severe escalation in Arab violence in recent weeks.
