A 40-year-old man was moderately wounded Saturday, after a Molotov cocktail was seemingly thrown on his vehicle in Husan, just south of Jerusalem. Paramedics from Magen David Adom arrived on the scene and found the man, a resident of Beitar Illit, suffering from burn wounds.
Paramedics found that the man had also been wounded by a rock before evacuating him to Hadassah Hospital. The IDF said that searches had begun in the area, but that no suspects had yet been apprehended. Firefighters extinguished the fire in the vehicle.

MDA paramedic Mor Yosef who treated the wounded man said, "We joined the military ambulance that evacuated the wounded man from the area. He said that he was hurt from a rock and a Molotov cocktail that ignited in the vehicle. We provided medical treatment including dressings, fluids, and pain treatment."
A spokesperson for the Hadassah medical center said that the man was brought to the trauma room and that he was suffering from burns and a wound from a rock that hit his head.
A woman and her husband were also wounded in November 2013 by a Molotov cocktail that was thrown at their vehicle in the Etsion region. The woman was lightly to moderately wounded and the man was in stable condition after the attack.
