Infant Wounded by Stones Thrown at Bus in Yerushalayim


stone-yerushalayimTwo separate incidents, both most likely motivated by a nationalistic background, took place this evening in Yerushalayim and Shomron.

A two-and-a-half-year-old infant was lightly wounded by glass shards after unknown perpetrators hurled rockets at a bus in a Yerushalayim street. Earlier in the evening, a Molotov cocktail was thrown at a bus on Route 505 between Tapuach and Sha’ar Shomron. The bus driver suffered light wounds from glass shards from the windshield of the bus.

Ynet reported that Yarkon Area Magen David Adom (MDA) teams treated the bus driver at the scene, while IDF troops combed the area for suspects. In the Yerushalayim incident, Magen David Adom teams evacuated the child to the city’s Hadassah Medical Center at Mount Scopus, and police forces scanned the area.

The infant sustained wounds to her face and legs from the glass shards, according to Ynet. Hagai Vangush, a MDA paramedic said that she had been sitting next to the window. “The bus stopped under a bridge and we gave her medical treatment,” Vangoush added. “There weren’t many passengers on the bus and she was the only one who needed medical attention.”
