Palestinians firebomb Jewish father and baby

Sunday, March 14, 2010 |  Israel Today Staff

Palestinian Arab terrorists on Saturday night lightly wounded an Israeli father and his nine-month old baby as they drove on Highway 443 north of Jerusalem.

The attackers hurled a homemade firebomb at the victims' vehicle, setting it ablaze. Medics were able to treat the wounded at the scene before transporting them to a nearby hospital.

Highway 443 was closed to Palestinian traffic several years ago after becoming the scene of almost daily terrorist attacks.

Two months ago, Israel's Supreme Court ruled that the army could no longer keep Palestinians from using the road, as it violated their basic human rights. Since then, there have been a number of attacks on the road, all of which can be directly attributed to the court ruling.
