Next  to the Old City rocks were thrown at a number 2 Egged bus, causing the driver to lose control and slam into a wall.

The bus driver was lightly injured from the impact and treated on the scene by Magen David Adom paramedics. None of the passengers were injured though the bus was damaged. Police opened investigations into both of the incidents.

Last week, the IDF and Israel Police arrested two Palestinians from the village of Halhoul near Hebron, who allegedly threw a rock that killed Asher Hillel Palmer and his son as they drove near Kiryat Arba last month, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) announced on Thursday.

The two Palestinians confessed during questioning to throwing the rock at Palmer’s car on September 23, which caused him to run off the road and flip over, killing him and his infant son, Yonatan.
