A man, 62, was hurt in the head Monday when Arabs hurled rocks at the bus he was traveling in, near the Old City of Jerusalem.

The attack took place at Maaleh Shalom, near the Dung Gate.

Magen David Adom paramedics who were alerted to the site gave the man medical attention and evacuated him to Hadasah Ein Karem Hospital.

He was reportedly suffering from a head injury but listed in light condition.

A week ago, a Jewish youth aged 17 was lightly hurt during a fight with several Armenian residents at Or Haim Street in the Old City.

He was taken to Shaarey Tzedek Hospital with injuries to the head and hand.
