(JNS.org) A 12-year-old Israeli boy was knocked unconscious and nearly drowned after an unidentified Palestinian terrorist threw a rock at the boy’s head at the Abraham’s Well spring in the Tel Rumeida neighborhood of Hebron.
Security camera footage shows a Palestinian man throwing a large rock at a group of Jewish children near the spring and then fleeing the scene.
The boy who was hit by the rock lost consciousness and fell into the water. Others at the scene pulled the unconscious child out of the spring.
An emergency medical team rushed the boy to Jerusalem’s Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center, where he received 10 stitches in his head to close the large wound. According to a spokesperson from Hadassah, the boy later regained consciousness, The Times of Israel reported.
The IDF stated an “unidentified Palestinian” was responsible for the attack and that Israeli security forces were “searching the area for suspects.”
Palestinian Arabs who throw rocks at Jews are richly rewarded by the Palestinian Authority. A rock-thrower who succeeds in killing a Jew, and by consequence is sentenced to 30 or more years in prison, receives a monthly salary of $3,400. The family of an unmarried rock-thrower who is killed while trying to stone Jews receives $100 monthly. The widow of a rock-thrower receives $250 each month, for life.
