A 50-year-old woman was seriously wounded on Friday afternoon after rocks were hurled at the car she was traveling in northeast of Ramallah. A man, lightly injured during the attack, was treated by Magen David Adom paramedics. The two were traveling when assailants threw rocks towards the car, piercing the windshield. The man continued driving until they reached Samaria's Tapuah Junction where he alerted rescue forces. Both the man and woman were evacuated to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva. Medical officials said the woman was suffering from a fractured skull. The IDF was conducting searches in the area to locate those responsible for the attack. Military sources speculated that the suspects had fled the scene to the nearby village of Sanjil.
