Rocks were thrown on Monday evening at the Jerusalem Light Rail as it was passing near the Shuafat neighborhood. No one was hurt but the train sustained broken glass.

In a separate incident, rocks were thrown at a bus near the Yafo Gate in the city. As a result, the driver lost control and hit a wall. The driver was lightly wounded but the passengers were unhurt.

Police are conducting extensive searches for the rock throwers.

On Yom Kippur, a woman in labor and her husband were attacked as they rushed to the hospital.

At 2:30 a.m., as they drove near the Har Homa neighborhood on their way to Hadassah Ein Karem hospital in Jerusalem, several Palestinian Authority terrorists jumped out and began to hurl rocks at the car.

Asher Palmer and his infant son Yonatan, who were killed by terrorists several weeks ago, were also victims of a rock attack. Their murderers were captured last week.
