Chabad car stoned near ancient site of Maccabees battle

Arabs stoned a Chabad vehicle on its way to distribute doughnuts to soldiers on road 60 Saturday night.

The stoning attack occurred near the site where the Maccabees fought the Greeks at Beit Tzur, near the community of Karmei Tzur between Gush Etzion and Hevron.

There were no injuries but the car was damaged. The driver said that this was a miracle "in those days and in our time", since the car was full of glass from the shattered windscreen.
