Palestinian Authority terrorists aimed at Israeli motorists Monday evening on the roads of Samaria. 

PA Arabs hurled rocks at an Israeli bus belonging to the Afikim Bus Company on Highway 55, in Shomron (Samaria). The incident occurred near the Arab village of Azzun, near the Jewish town of Ma'ale Shomron.

None of the passengers were injured in the attack, and a search was launched for the perpetrators.

A similar attack occurred in the same area last Saturday night. Several vehicles were damaged, but no injuries were reported.

Elsewhere in Shomron, Arabs hurled five firebombs (Molotov cocktails) at vehicles bearing Israeli license plates traveling near the Beitunia checkpoint, near Ramallah.

No one was injured, and none of the vehicles was damaged.

Security forces set out to search for the attackers, and a source told reporters that soldiers had surrounded the perpetrators in the area.

There have been dozens of cases of road attacks, also known as traffic terror or road terror, in recent months. These attacks are aimed at killing motorists; sometimes they actually succeed in their attempts.
