Two people were injured when Palestinians hurled rocks at an Israeli car that was making its way from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem for Rabbi Ovadia Yosef's funeral on Monday evening.
The vehicle, that had four passengers - two adults and two children - was making its way through Ben-Zion Interchange at 6 p.m. Monday when a group of Palestinians started throwing rocks at it.
"At first, as a natural instinct, we stopped the car and called the police. But pretty soon we realized that if we stop, we will not stay alive," Ariel Doperman, the car's driver, said.
"It's crazy that in the heart of Jerusalem in broad daylight Israelis' lives are in danger," he added.
The two injured were taken to Hadassah University Medical Center on Jerusalem’s Mount Scopus for treatment.
