A car driving in the West Bank settlement of Otniel was attacked on Friday morning by unknown assailants, who threw an explosive device at the window. There were no injuries, and minor damage was reported to the vehicle.

The attacker reportedly stuffed a piece of cargo lying on the side of the road with explosive and sticky materials, and activated it as the victim's vehicle drove by. A sticky substance was spread over the windshield of the victim's car.

The car continued driving until it reached Kiryat Arba, just outside of Hebron, where the car was to be inspected.
