A rock was thrown at a bus carrying female high school students from the AMIT Ulpena in Givat Shmuel to Eilat Monday afternoon.

The rock was thrown while the bus was traveling on Highway 90 and shattered one of the windows. There were no casualties in the incident.

The police who were called to the scene arrested a young Bedouin man, who according to the Ulpena director, passed the bus and threw the rock as he passed.

The school's administration wrote in an email to students' parents: "We had a lovely day and we are on our way to Eilat. A few kilometers before the city, a rock was thrown at one of the buses, and the outer window shattered (the inner one remained intact). Everyone is fine, we are continuing to Eilat."
