An Israeli man and his pregnant wife who was in labor were attacked by Palestinian stone throwers this weekend as they were making their way to the hospital.
This comes less than a month after 25-year-old Asher Palmer and his baby son Yonatan were killed when Palestinians threw a large rock through their windshield near Hebron, causing it to overturn, as The Blaze previously reported.
That same week, a 20-month-old girl was left bloodied after police said Arabs threw rocksat the car she was traveling in.
In this weekend’s incident, Ariel Goldman of Pnei Kedem, a Jewish town near Bethlehem, told Arutz Sheva he and his wife were lucky to escape alive. It described the scene of an apparently pre-meditated lynching:
Their ordeal began near Har Homa at 2:30 a.m., as they drove to Hadassah Ein Karem hospital in Jerusalem. Suddenly, they encountered a point in the road that had been blocked by large stones.
As Goldman slowed the car, looking for a way around the trap, several Palestinian Authority terrorists jumped out and began to hurl rocks at the car.
The attack turned into a game of cat and mouse, as Goldman looked for ways around the rocks and tried to keep moving, while the terrorists followed the car and continued to pelt it with heavy stones … The terrorists “had murder in their eyes,” Goldman said.
After speeding away from the first “roadblock,” he encountered a second group of Palestinians on the outskirts of Jerusalem who also stoned his car.
According to the Israel Defense Forces, Palestinian rock-throwing in the West Bank reached a new high in September: 498 incidents, 33 percent more than the monthly average in the past year.
