The stone-throwers damaged two cars.

Police and IDF troops began combing the area for the assailants after the attack, but there were no reports of arrests.

The West Bank highway has been the site of multiple terrorist attacks over the last few weeks – including this past Saturday, when an attacker stabbed and lightly wounded a soldier before security forces neutralized the perpetrator.
