( A 6-month-old baby was lightly wounded Thursday by stones that were thrown by Palestinian rioters at cars near the Tekoa village in Judea and Samaria. The baby was in the vehicle with two siblings and his mother, who was unharmed but treated for shock.

"The stones shattered the windows of the car and glass was scattered all around myself and and my children,” the mother said, the Jerusalem Post reported. "It was very scary for us. People need to understand that stones can kill someone and there needs to be something we can do to stop it."

In another incident, a woman was injured from glass shards after her car was bombarded with rocks. Last month, 64-year-old Jewish man Alexander Levlovich was killed when Palestinian rioters attacked his car with rocks in Jerusalem on Rosh Hashanah eve. 

In recent weeks, Israeli police have been deploying extra forces and arresting rioters in a government-ordered “zero tolerance” crackdown on Palestinian rock and pipe bomb attacks against Jews.
