The editor of the Hebrew-language newspaper B’Sheva was lightly wounded on Monday night when a terrorist threw a rock at his vehicle in northern Samaria.

The rock struck the face of Emmanuel Shiloh, who was driving with his wife Idit. He continued driving until reaching the entrance of the Israeli outpost of Havat Gilad, where he was given medical treatment by Magen David Adom emergency responders. The MDA first aid team then transported Shiloh to Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba, where it was determined that his jaw had been fractured.

“Good morning from Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba. I was brought here last night in an ambulance. I was injured by a rock which an evil Arab terrorist threw at the vehicle in which my wife and I were traveling, as we drove home from the engagement celebration of friends in Yitzhar,” Shilo wrote in a post from the hospital.

“I don’t exactly remember the details, but my dear and brave wife, who was driving with me and accompanied me here, says that I told her that I was hit by a rock and got hit hard, and that I continued to drive until Havat Gilad, where first IDF forces arrived and afterwards a civilian ambulance from Yitzhar, which evacuated me here,” he continued.

“Hurling rocks at moving vehicles is attempted murder. That is how we need to view it,” Shiloh concluded.

Earlier on Monday, an Israeli man was wounded when a group of Palestinians rioted near the Jewish community of Homesh in northern Samaria.

The Homesh resident was hit in the head by a stone thrown by one of the rioters, who came from the nearby Arab village of Burqa. He was transported to the hospital for treatment.
