An Israeli in his 30s suffered a head injury on Monday after he was hit by a stone thrown by Jewish settlers at Palestinians in the West Bank, according to the IDF Spokesperson Unit.
The settlers were throwing stones towards a Palestinian vehicle near Havat Gilad in the West Bank when the incident occurred, in one of the latest incidents of stone throwing terror attacks this month.
It is unclear if the injured person was throwing rocks as well. He was located on the other side of the street when he was injured by a stone thrown by the Jewish terrorists that missed the Palestinian vehicle.
The injured person was taken to the Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Campus in Petah Tikva in an IDF ambulance.
A Palestinian was reportedly injured by settlers throwing stones nearby on Monday as well, according to the Palestinian WAFA news. The Palestinian was transferred to a hospital for further treatment. His condition was not reported.
Rivka Teitel, an Israeli woman, was moderately injured when a rock thrown by Palestinian terrorists hit her in the head earlier this month. At the time, Binyamin Regional Council head Israel Ganz called on the IDF to restore calm and to adopt a no-tolerance attitude for stone throwing.
According to Yesh Din, an Israeli nonprofit human rights organization, rock throwing attacks against Palestinians have been a nightly occurrence since Ahuvia Sandak's death on December 21.
While police claim that Sandak was throwing rocks at Palestinian vehicles and that his car flipped after he fled when they arrived at the scene, protesters claim that the officers acted against the law.
Violent protests have taken place throughout Israel every week since Sandak's death, with youth blocking traffic and harassing and assaulting police officers and passersby.
If the police were too aggressive, they could face charges or be disciplined, whereas if the car flipping was an accident, then it is possible that only Sandak’s co-activists will be charged for rock throwing and possibly dangerous driving leading to his death.
