A woman in her 60s and two teenagers, ages 16 and 18, were lightly wounded by shattered glass Sunday night after Arab assailants threw rocks at an Egged bus traveling to the Western Wall through east Jerusalem’s Wadi al-Joz neighborhood, near Rockefeller Junction.

According to police, the victims were on the No. 3 bus when the panes of glass suddenly shattered, causing minor cuts to their heads. Magen Adom David paramedics treated the three before transferring them to Hadassah University Medical Center in Mount Scopus.

Several passengers on the packed bus were also treated for shock.

All three victims were released from the hospital after being treated. Police have opened an investigation into the attack.
