Two people sustained minor injuries when a firebomb hit their car near the West Bank settlement of Efrat.
One of the most prominent Orthodox rabbis of our time, Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, chief rabbi of Efrat, related the following story in the July 12-18 issue of the International Jerusalem Post:
Palestinians demonstrated throughout the West Bank to mark the anniversary of their declaration of independence. Hundreds of demonstrators, including foreign activists, blocked West Bank junctions and threw rocks at cars with Israeli license plates. Two Israelis were injured near the West Bank settlement of Efrat after their car was hit with stones.
The Israeli government reportedly agreed to subsidize the construction of 500 new living units in the West Bank, despite saying it would not provide incentives to the settlements.
