The IDF announced Sunday that the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) and police ahd arrested and solicited confessions from five Palestinian teenagers responsible for the stone throwing attack near Ariel on March 14 which injured seven Israelis, including a three-year-old girl who was critically wounded.

In the attack, a stone thrown at a vehicle on Route 5 near Kfar Haras in the West Bank, caused a woman to veer off the road into a truck. She was moderately injured as were two of her daughters, while her three-year-old toddler was left fighting for her life.

Rocks were thrown at several other vehicles during the attack, including a bus.
