A two-year-old boy and six-year-old girl were lightly wounded by shards of glass during a rock attack on the Egged bus they were traveling in near Pisgat Ze’ev in Jerusalem on Tuesday afternoon, police said.

According to spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, as the bus was driving down Route 1 past French Hill at approximately 4:30 p.m., Arab suspects threw several large rocks at it, forcing the driver to pull over and evacuate the passengers.

The two children sustained cuts during the attack and were treated at the scene by Magen David Adom paramedics before being transferred to Shaare Zedic Medical Center in Jerusalem, Rosenfeld said. No other injuries were reported. Police are searching the area for the suspects, he said.
