Ten Palestinians detained for highway stone-throwing


An Israeli mother and her three small daughters – aged 6, 4 and 2 – were badly injured when rocks thrown at Highway 5 traffic near Ariel Thursday night caused their car to swerve and crash into a truck. The youngest child aged 2 was still fighting for her life Friday.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has ordered a crackdown on the stone-throwers plaguing West Bank road traffic.
