Magen David Adom (MDA) paramedics evacuated the soldier to Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem in light condition.
Police were called to the scene and launched an investigation.
The soldier told the MDA paramedics that Haredi assailants spotted him as he was driving in his civilian vehicle in the Ramat Beit Shemesh neighborhood and saw that he was clad in military uniform before they began hurling rocks in his direction.
Upon arriving at the scene, the medics found the soldier outside his vehicle following the crash having sustained bruises.
“When we arrived at the scene, we saw the driver walking around the vehicle that had crashed into an electrical pole,” a medic recalled.
“He told us that he hit the pole after a rock was thrown at him. He was suffering from light wounds. We gave him medical treatment and evacuated him in light condition to the hospital.
