Soldier wounded by explosive device, soon after another attack near J’lem in which anonymous individuals threw stones at vehicle, lightly wounding 22-month-old and her father.

An Israeli soldier was wounded by an explosive device thrown by the Patriarch’s Way security checkpoint near Jerusalem on Wednesday night.

The soldier was taken to Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem in moderate condition. The terrorist fled the scene, and police began searching the area.

Only a few hours earlier, a 22-month-old and her father were lightly wounded after unknown individuals threw stones at two vehicles on Route 45 next to Jerusalem. IDF troops began searching for the perpetrators soon after.

The father was lightly wounded in the shoulder and did not require medical treatment. The toddler was wounded in face by glass fragments. Her father took her to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, where she was treated and released.

On Tuesday evening, a bus and two private cars were pelted with stones evening in the At-Tur neighborhood in East Jerusalem, leaving five people lightly wounded.

Four of the wounded – three Jordanian teens and a Jewish boy, all aged 16-17 – were taken to Hadassah Medical Center.

The fifth wounded person was an At-Tur resident, a woman in her fifties, who was also taken to the same hospital.

The teenagers suffered bruising on their heads and limbs.
