Palestinian Arab stone throwers attacked Jewish motorists in Jerusalem's Armon Hanatziv neighborhood Thursday evening, wounding a 2-year-old Jewish girl.

The child was traveling in a vehicle targeted by the assailants, and suffered a moderate head injury when at least one stone crashed through the car's windows.

The girl was rushed to a nearby hospital where doctors listed her in stable condition.

Later that night, Israeli authorities arrested four Arab men between the ages of 15-20 from the adjacent village of Sur Baher. The four were scheduled to stand trial Friday morning for the potentially fatal stoning attack.
