An Israeli was lightly injured at the Huwara checkpoint near Shechem (Nablus) in Samaria on Monday afternoon when Arabs threw a firebomb at his car. 

The man sustained minor injuries from smoke inhalation and burns as the vehicle was engulfed in flames. He managed to jump out of the car in time, however, preventing serious wounds. 

Security forces and paramedics arrived on the scene quickly. The victim was treated and taken to a hospital,  while security forces began searching for suspects. 

Arab terrorists were also busy elsewhere in the Judea and Samaria region on Monday, pelting stones at an Egged 147 bus traveling from Jerusalem to Ma'ale Adumim. 

Luckily, no one was hurt in the attack. 

Earlier Monday afternoon, general security services together with the IDF and Israel Police uncovered a six-man terror cell responsible for several attacks in Samaria's Binyamin region. 

The attacks included hurling pipe bombs and firebombs at the pre-military academy Elisha in Neve Tzuf and the town Halamish. 

All of the members of the terror cell, which investigations show conducted five attacks between January and February, are residents of the Arab town Beit Rima.
