Rocks were thrown at Jerusalem’s light rail, smashing a window.
The rocks were thrown Monday in eastern Jerusalem’s Arab Shufat neighborhood, according to reports.
The light rail’s windows are protected by a plastic shield to prevent injury from stone throwing. No one was hurt in the incident.
Also Monday, rocks were thrown at a bus driving near the Jaffa Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem. The driver lost control of the bus and hit a wall. Only the bus driver was injured, according to reports.
