Palestinian rock throwing is regularly killing innocent people in Israel.
By Gil Ronen
A Jewish resident of Mahane Yatir, in southern Mount Hevron, was ambushed by a rock-wielding Arab youth Friday as he drove toward the community of Carmel, not far from the Zif Junction.
The event was caught on video by the man’s car cam. This may be the first time such an attack is caught on video in real time, although rock attacks are common in Judea and Samaria, and have become regular occurences in Jerusalem as well. A large rock thrown into a car hurtling down a road can easily kill or maim the driver and passengers, or cause the driver to lose control of the car.

However, the rock ambushes reflect a growing brazenness on the part of the Arab enemy, which is constantly being incited to violence by the Palestinian Authority, and since the attacks cost nothing, require no planning, and are usually carried out by minors, it is hard to see how the arrests will put an end to the phenomenon.
A recent video explained how rock ambushes are used to deadly effect by Muslims against Jews in the Land of Israel.
In an article on August 4, 2013, Jodi Rudoren proceeded to explain the situation of rock throwing in the West Bank and what happens when boys in the West Bank throw rocks. They can get arrested. It was eluded to in the article for a paragraph that “it is a game that can kill.” Also there was mention of a man and his one year old son who were killed after rocks were thrown at his car. This video will shed light on who this man and his son were and show the dangers of rock throwing, not only because it is done, but how it is done.
