Palestinian stone throwing critically injures Jewish family

( Palestinians throwing stones at a road near the Jewish community of Ariel in Judea and Samaria caused a car crash that critically injured a 3-year-old girl and moderately injured her mother and her two other daughters, ages 4 and 6.

“This is a terror attack like any other,” a senior IDF source told Channel 10 news in a report cited by the Times of Israel.

“The rocks were thrown by Palestinians from one of the nearby villages. We have seen a 50 percent upsurge in rock throwing incidents since the announcement of [U.S. President Barack] Obama’s visit to the country,” the source added.
