An Arab mob ambushed a female Jewish motorist with rocks Wednesday morning, then proceeded to kick her and try and wrest her from the car. She managed to escape.
The woman, who is in her 40s, was hurt by rocks and kicks to her entire body. She has been taken to Shaare Tzedek hospital and is in stable condition.
She is a resident of Tekoa. The attack took place outside the Arab village of Beit Sahour, near Bethlehem, on a route used by thousands of Jewish motorists every day.
While rock attacks by Arabs have become nearly routine, this is the first time in recent years that such an attack was followed by attempts to physically engage the motorist and perhaps abduct her.
