Two young women were wounded Tuesday when Arabs attacked a bus in Jerusalem. The attack took place opposite Shaar Haashpot in the Old City.

A group of Arabs threw rocks at the bus, causing damage and injuring the two women.

The women, both tourists, were taken to Shaarei Tzedek Hospital for treatment. Both are in light condition.

At approximately the same time Palestinian Authority Arabs stoned cars in Samaria (Shomron). A driver traveling between Maaleh Shomron and Alfei Menashe was hit, but luckily the attack did not cause injury.

The IDF is searching for the perpetrators.
