Arabs terrorists attacked an Israeli motorist Thursday in a drive-by rock attack near the Samaria (Shomron) Arab village of Duma. The attack took place on a road northeast of Ramallah.

Although the vehicle was damaged, the driver managed to keep the car moving and immediately contacted the IDF.

Both the driver and the passengers escaped injury, and Israeli soldiers have launched a search for the attackers.

A similar attack last September ended in tragedy when terrorists in a moving vehicle hurled rocks at a vehicle driven by Asher Palmer.

The Kiryat Arba man was driving on Highway 60 with his baby son Yonatan in the car when Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists hurled rocks at his car, smashing the windshield. Palmer lost control of the vehicle, which crashed.

Police who went to the scene at first declared the incident to be a simple car accident. But outraged local Jewish residents who also went to the scene immediately noticed the hole in the smashed windshield and the rock with human blood on the front seat.

Such attacks have become more frequent over the past year, as Arab media incitement and encouragement from the Palestinian Authority government podium whips up a frenzy of hate.

Sources say the increased Arab rock attacks on the roads of Judea, Samaria and in Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem indicate the start of a Third Intifada – the start of another wave of what some people refer to as the “Oslo War,” a reference to Arab violence against Israelis perpetrated in the wake of the Oslo Accords.
