3 Israeli settlers injured by Molotov cocktail near Beit El

Oct. 23, 2015 7:00 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 24, 2015 11:00 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Three Israeli settlers were injured after a Molotov cocktail was thrown at their vehicle near the illegal settlement of Beit El in the occupied West Bank, the Israeli army and media said.

The Israeli army said that the firebomb injured a mother and her two children while they were driving down Route 60. A four-year-old sustained burns across her body and was left in moderate condition, while the other two were left with light injuries, according to Israeli daily Haaretz.

The injured were taken to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem.

No immediate information was given on the suspects.

Ongoing attacks between Palestinian locals and Israeli settlers in the occupied West Bank have increased since two Israeli settlers were shot dead by Palestinian gunmen on Oct. 1.

Israeli settlers carried out a spate of reprisal attacks following the fatal shooting, and more than 200 Israeli settlers on Sunday attacked the Palestinian villages of Wad al-Haseen and Wad al-Nasara near the illegal Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba near Hebron.

During the attack, Israeli settlers threw stones and firebombs at Palestinian homes and injured at least three people, two of which were minors, while Israeli forces later shot and injured one Palestinian with live fire.

Over 50 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces since the beginning of the month, and at least nine Israelis have died in attacks by Palestinians.

Attacks by Palestinians on Israeli settlers living illegally in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank often result in increased security and restrictions by the Israeli military on surrounding Palestinian communities.

Nice picture of a war crime being committed: Palestinian hurls firebomb at Israeli civilians trying to kill them. That's a war crime. Palestinians love carrying out war crimes. The BDS movement loves supporting them. That means the BDS movement is partner to war crimes.

Brian your comment is so laughable that it hurts. Its the equivalent of Hitler claiming that Mussolini was a bad guy that did bad things. By now, we can't just say that there's too much blood on Israeli hands. I think there's too much blood on Israel as a whole. You're a shill for war criminals.
