Arab rock-throwers assailed a Jewish tree planting celebration that was taking place in the Jewish town of Yitzhar in honor of Tu B’Shevat on Tuesday evening. The tree planting ceremony was run for children of the community in the land owned by the community just outside the town.

The Arab rock throwers came from the nearby town of Urif which lies just southwest of Yitzhar. According to reports the assailants proceeded to throw rocks by hand and slingshot at the children and hit one of the boys in the face with a large stone flung at high speed. The child was taken by a military ambulance to the nearest hospital as IDF and border police forces chased the assailants back to their village.
