Two buses were stoned late Saturday night on Route 437 in the Jerusalem area, between the towns of Hizme and Adam. The stones were thrown at the buses from a passing car in the opposite lane in what may be a new terror tactic. The act was recorded on camera and in the video, the windshield of the bus can be seen broken.

The driver of one of the damaged buses said that he was lightly scratched but no one else was hurt. His bus, Egged’s 145 line, was hit with a brick and the shape of the brick could be seen on the broken windshield, he said. 

The incident joins a long list of attacks on West Bank roads in recent weeks.

On Friday, the IDF thwarted a stabbing attack against civilians at a bus stop at the Giti Avishar junction in the Samaria region of the West Bank, killing the Palestinian terrorist.

Last month, Palestinian terrorists killed 25-year-old Yehuda Dimentman and lightly wounded two others. They sprayed bullets at a vehicle as it left the Homesh hilltop in the direction of the Shavei Shomron settlement, in the Samaria region.
