( An Israeli man in his 40s was lightly wounded on Monday when rocks were thrown at his car as he was driving through Habitot Junction on Highway 60, near the Palestinian village of Hawara in Samaria, Israel Hayom reported.

The rocks broke the car’s rear window and caused the driver to lose control of the vehicle and hit a boulder on the side of the road. Immediately after the accident occurred, members of the Samaria Regional Council’s security division and medics from Hatzolah Judea and Samaria scrambled to the scene and administered first aid until Magen David Adom paramedics arrived.

The paramedics continued to treat the man and took him to Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikva, where he was categorized as lightly wounded, with contusions to his lower limbs.
