Israeli driver attacked with Molotov cocktail, stones near Beitar Ilit

A 40-year old resident of Beitar Ilit was moderately wounded when his car was attacked this evening by 'Palestinian' terrorists throwing stones and Molotov cocktails at the Hussan junction near his residence.
Arab terrorists threw a molotov cocktail on Saturday night at an Israeli car near Bethlehem, adjacent to the Hussan Junction in the Gush Etzion area of Judea, leaving the driver of the car suffering from moderate wounds.
After the firebomb exploded, inflicting damage on the car, a 40-year-old resident of Beitar Ilit driving the car was inflicted with first- and second-degree burns, as well as as a cut to his head, apparently from a stone that was also thrown in the attack.
The wounded man, who suffers from burns, was treated by Magen David Adom (MDA) medical crews at the scene, before being evacuated to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem.
Shraga Hoffman, deputy director-general of United Hatzalah, told Arutz Sheva "when I arrived with other paramedics to the scene, we gave medical treatment to the car driver, who was suffering cuts from stones and burns from the molotov cocktail."
"According to reports the driver, a resident of Beitar Illit, arrived in the area to buy something at a local store and was attacked by several young Arabs. Large IDF forces have begun a search to locate them," added Hoffman.
The Hussan Junction has been a problematic area in recent weeks, with Arab terrorists commonly targeting Israeli cars and buses with stones and molotov cocktails.
I reported on the regular stone throwing from Hussan a week ago.

From the story, it sounds like the man had actually gone into Hussan to shop (note what I highlighted above - Beitar Ilit and Hussan are literally across the road from each other), something I have reported in the past, and which a resident of Beitar Ilit has just confirmed to me happens regularly. Maybe it's time for the shopping to stop. 

Not the first time this sort of attack has happened in that spot either.
