    The woman was taken to Sheba Medical Center near Tel Hashomer where she was being treated for head injuries.
    Two of her children who were in the car with her escaped injury.
    From images and video taken at the scene of the attack, it appears that a stone thrown at the vehicle hit the windshield, wounding the woman who was driving.

    IDF troops surrounded the nearby village of Dier Nidham, where they began searching for those responsible, believing them to be hiding there.
    Uri Gavriel, a paramedic who arrived at the scene of the attack said the woman was conscious when she was taken out of the car.
    "We provided initial medical care that included bandaging her wounds and stopping the bleeding and evacuated her in an ambulance in stable condition," he said.
    Jack "Yaakov" Teitel, a Florida-born immigrant to Israel, was convicted in 2013 of the murder of Palestinian taxi driver Samir Balbisi in 1997 and the murder of a Palestinian shepherd a few months later.
