A 15-year-old teen and a 40-year-old man were wounded on Tuesday evening in a rock attack on a bus in Jerusalem.

Arab terrorists hurled rocks at the bus as it was travelling from the Neve Yaakov neighborhood towards central Jerusalem.

Volunteer paramedics from the Ichud Hatzalah organization treated the two victims at the scene. A statement from Ichud Hatzalah noted that the window of the bus was shattered due to the rock throwing, adding that the bus continued until the nearest bus stop where it stopped and the paramedics treated the victims.

Last Thursday, Arabs hurled large rocks at an Egged bus as it traveled past the Damascus Gate.

Four people were lightly wounded, all of whom were treated at the scene by medics from the Magen David Adom emergency medical service. The wounded include a baby.

A week earlier, an Arab youth threw a rock at the Emunah College of Arts and Technology, also in Jerusalem.

The rock hit a 10-year-old girl in the head. The girl, who sustained minor injuries, was treated by a team of Magen David Adom paramedics who then took her to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.

Rock attacks perpetrated by Arab terrorists have killed and maimed many people, including babies. Three-year-old Adelle Biton, who was critically wounded in a rock terror attack in Samaria in March, was recently allowed to be temporarily discharged from the hospital for a weekend with her family.
