A Palestinian Arab terrorist on Friday hurled acid at a family of Israeli Jews south of Bethlehem.
The attack occurred adjacent to the Palestinian Arab town of Husan. As the family was stopped at a local junction, the assailant hurled an acidic substance through an open window of their vehicle.
The father, mother and three of their children, aged 8–10, were all lightly injured in the attack.
The terrorist fled the scene, but was shot and seriously wounded a short distance away by an armed Israeli civilian. A screwdriver was found on the terrorist, indicating he had intended to also stab his innocent victims.
In other violence, a Palestinian rammed his car into an Israeli army checkpoint near the Samarian town of Nablus (biblical Shechem). No one was injured besides the driver.
