Rock-throwing Palestinian terrorists wounded a 10-year-old Israeli boy, who remains in hospital with internal bleeding in his head.
A 10-year-old boy is being treated for minor internal bleeding in his head after being hit by rock-throwing Palestinian terrorists in northern Samaria, Arutz Sheva reported.
The assailants ambushed a civilian bus full of children that had just left a rally Thursday calling for reconstruction of the town of Sa-Nur, which was demolished in the summer of 2005 during Israel’s disengagement from Gaza and northern Samaria.
“We were on our way to the center of the country. When we left Sa-Nur we passed an [Arab] village, and at the entrance to the village we saw that Arabs were burning tires, and we saw youths standing with rocks in their hands by the side of the road,” the boy’s mother told Arutz Sheva.
“It was very frightening,” she continued.” We heard rocks hitting the bus from all directions. We immediately calmed the children,” who remained seated. “We thought that the missiles would not penetrate a protected bus.”
However, “Suddenly there was a loud boom. It was terrifying. We realized that something had happened, and immediately my son screamed. Most of the people on the bus were small children. They were all lying down on the floor and screaming. We realized that something was wrong, and we realized that it was my son. There was a paramedic who stopped the bleeding…
“There was a lot of blood… He lost consciousness and then it all calmed down.”
The boy was treated by a paramedic before reaching a hospital. “He had a large, open wound in his head stitched up, and he remains under observation because of the internal bleeding they found,” the mother told Arutz Sheva.
Although she was mostly concerned about her son, she said she found it “frustrating that such a thing happens so easily.”
