Israel arrested eight Palestinians suspected of causing a car accident that left an Israeli infant in critical condition.

The suspects, who were apprehended by Israeli soldiers, Shin Bet security agents and police, are suspected of causing several injuries to Israeli civilians by throwing rocks on Thursday at cars near the West Bank Jewish settlement of Ariel.

One of the cars collided with a truck as it came under a volley of rocks. In the crash, 3-year-old Adelle Biton sustained head injuries, which doctors at Schneider Children's Medical Center in Petach Tikvah termed “extremely serious,” according to Army Radio. Her mother and two of her sisters from the settlement of Yakir received minor injuries and also were hospitalized.

The suspects were arrested in Haris and Kifl Haris near Qalqilya and were transferred to security forces for further questioning, according to the IDF Spokesperson.
