Three Israelis, including a toddler, were wounded in two separate terror attacks within hours of each other.
The wave of Palestinian terror continues. On Wednesday evening, three people, including a two-year-old, were hurt in two separate attacks.
An IDF soldier was moderately wounded when Palestinian terrorists threw an improvised explosive device (IED) at the checkpoint where he was stationed at Beit Jallah, near Bethlehem.
The terrorist fled the scene, and Israeli security forces have launched a manhunt.
The soldier was evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital in Jerusalem, were he was treated for shrapnel injuries to one of his eyes and his face.
In a separate attack, which occurred a few hours earlier, a baby girl was wounded by rocks thrown by Palestinian terrorists while riding north of Jerusalem in the family car. Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said Palestinians threw rocks at an Israeli car near Jerusalem, lightly injuring the driver and a two-year-old girl.
The toddler was wounded in her face by glass shards. Her father took her to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, where she was treated and released. The father did not require treatment.
Opposition Leader Isaac Herzog said there must be an “uncompromising war on terror.”
“I also told this to Abu Mazen [PA head Mahmoud Abbas] when I met with him,” Herzog, who visited the Palestinian Authority leader in Ramallah on Tuesday, stated. “Whoever harms Israelis – will face the consequences.”
