Palestinians throwing stones at Jerusalem Egged Buses


This kind of news you probably won't find around international news agencies. Even the regular Israeli press is not too much into the subject, as Palestinians keep on throwing stones at buses and cars all the time.

Last night, Mozzaei Shabbat, Palestinians were throwing stones at several EGGED buses traveling to the Kotel (Western Wall). The incidents happened near the Damascus Gate, at the borderline between East and West Jerusalem. 

Stones were thrown at the bus lines 1 and 3 and the drivers did the only right thing: Just continue driving and somehow reaching the Kotel. Never stop at the Damascus Gate, as Palestinians may storm the bus. 

When the buses got to the Kotel, medical aid was waiting for the passengers.  

I was in such an incident some years ago but then, the windows didn't break, as they were made out of plastic. The area around Damascus Gate is full of Hamas and it is not surprising that, many times, Jews going to the Kotel are being attacked or that stones are flying at Israeli cars.
