An Israeli man who was wounded Saturday in a rock attack is now in serious condition, sources have told Arutz Sheva.

The man, a resident of the town of Nerya, was hit in the head by a rock as Palestinian Authority Arabs attacked Israelis during a protest against PA Arab rock attacks and other terrorism. The incident took place in the Talmonim bloc in the Binyamin region north of Jerusalem.

The victim was hit as he drove past the demonstration.

He initially suffered moderate injuries, but his medical condition has deteriorated and he is currently on a respirator.

Two of the Israeli men taking part in the counter-terror demonstration were wounded as well. Both are in light condition.

Border Police dispersed the PA rioters who attacked the Israeli counter-terror protesters. However, Israelis living in the region continued to report “massive” PA rock attacks over the course of Saturday night. Several cars were damaged during the attacks.

Several weeks ago Israeli toddler Adelle Biton was critically wounded in a PA rock attack. Adelle remains in a coma. Her family recently celebrated her third birthday at her bedside.
