Three family members, including a four-year-old girl, were injured in a firebomb attack on Friday afternoon, before Shabbat.

Terrorists threw a firebomb towards the family’s car on Highway 60, between Givat Assaf and Beit El.

Magen David Adom paramedics evacuated to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem a four-year-old girl in moderate condition with burns to her upper body and two lightly injured victims, an 11-year-old girl and a 44-year-old woman with burns to their hands.

Earlier, a Border Police officer was wounded in the same area when an Arab rioter threw a rock at him. The officer, who was in light condition, was taken for treatment at the Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem.

Earlier on Friday, a stabbing attack was thwarted in the southeastern Nof Tzion neighborhood of Jerusalem.

Alert residents reported to Border Police officers about a suspicious Arab man, who turned out to have a concealed knife on him and admitted to planning to stab Jews after he was apprehended.

Before that incident, a stabbing attack took place at Gevaot Checkpoint between Beit Shemesh and the Gush Etzion area, in which an Arab terrorist took advantage of Arabs being given permission to enter the checkpoint to access farm lands.

The terrorist pounced on an IDF soldier, stabbing him in the shoulder and lightly wounding him before being shot in the leg and moderately wounded.
