Palestinian assailants in Samaria hurled a large cement block onto a passing Israeli vehicle during the predawn hours Thursday, seriously injuring the driver.
The car was forced off the road by the impact of the cement block. Passing motorists alerted Israeli rescue services, and the victim was quickly transferred to a hospital in Jerusalem where he was treated for a fractured skull and face.
Israeli security forces said there was evidence the attackers had come from a nearby Palestinian-controlled village, but said it was nearly impossible to accurately identify them.
