Police arrested two more Palestinian youths from the east Jerusalem village of Zur Baher who are suspected in the rock-throwing attack which left a two-year-old Jewish child wounded in the nearby neighborhood of Armon Hanatziv last week, Israel Radio reported on Wednesday.

The arrests bring the total number of Palestinians allegedly involved in the attack who are currently in police custody to seven, according to Israel Radio.

The girl, Abigail Ben-Zion, remains hospitalized in stable condition at Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem. She was moderately wounded Thursday night, allegedly by Palestinian teenagers, when a large rock hit the vehicle she was traveling in with her parents and two brothers in the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood.
