Arab students from the Galilee on a field trip hurled stones at a girls' school on a hike in the Arbel National Park (West of Tiberias - ed.) Wednesday, outraged parents told Arutz Sheva. 

The group, from Kibbutz Sde Eliyahu in Beit She'an, was hit with a "heavy barrage" once they attempted to enter a cave, a father of one of the victims said. 

"The girls were hit with rocks when the teacher called for the group to enter a nearby cave," he recounted. "[My daughter] was hit by a number of rocks, injuring her." 

Several students and at least one teacher were injured in the attack. 

"Once the Arabs identified them as Jewish students, they began to throw the rocks," he added.

Security forces arrived at the scene and administered medical treatment to the wounded teacher and children. They were later transported to hospital nearby and treated in the emergency room.

The Arab group's guide later apologized to the school after the incident.
