A woman in Samaria was wounded by a rock-throwing terrorist Tuesday in another repeat of the First Intifada tactic to kill Jews.

The woman was treated at the scene for light injuries, and her vehicle and two others sustained damage in the attack on the highway from Yitzhar, on Highway 60 in northern Samaria.

Last week, Palestinian Authority Arabs wounded one person after they erected a roadblock of rocks on a highway, a tactic used in the First Intifada in the early 1990s when motorists were  forced to stop their cars to tear down the blockades, which often were booby-trapped.

The victim of the attack last week was an local Arab resident.

Yitzhar residents confirmed to Arutz Sheva other reports that the number of rock-throwing attacks has increased dramatically in the past several weeks, with public buses often being targeted.

Drivers on the southern part of Highway 60 in the southern Hevron Hills, between Jerusalem and Kiryat Arba-Hevron, have been exposed to almost daily attacks, which are designed at causing fatal accidents.

A father and his baby boy were murdered several months ago when a rock-throwing terrorist smashed the driver’s windshield, causing him to ram into a guardrail.
