      Rock breaks window at Beit Hadassah in Hebron

      Rock attacks continue in Hebron. Early this afternoon Arabs hurled rocks at Beit Hadassah from behind the building. No Israeli security forces were present to stop the attacks.

      One rock hit the home of Yoni and Yaffa Bleichbard, breaking a window in one of the children's rooms. The rock literally flew some 30 meters into the home, stopping in an adjacent hall.

      In an interview, Yaffa Bleichbard said she heard a boom, and ran to the room, which was empty. She said that only moments earlier children had left that room.

      She also mentioned that this isn't the first time their home has suffered Arab terror. Their apartment was, in the past, shot into and hit by rocks.
