When a 10-month-old boy was injured after Palestinians threw rockets from a light rail train, Magen David Adom, the national emergency service, transported the boy to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.

A 20-year-old Arab resident of Jerusalem's Shuafat neighborhood was wounded on Saturday in an exchange of fire with Israeli security forces as he was apprehended on suspicion he had earlier fired shots from Shuafat, a Palestinian neighborhood of East Jerusalem, toward the Pisgat Ze'ev neighborhood. He, too, was taken to Hadassah in Ein Kerem.

On Saturday night, young couple Yedaya and Hadassah Sharchaton were driving home to Yatir, south of Hebron, from visiting their families in Jerusalem with their year-old daughter Nitzan.

Terrorists threw heavy rocks, smashing the windshield, hitting Yedaya in the face and seriously injuring him. The car flipped over into a ditch on the side of the road. The family was brought to Hadassah in Ein Kerem, where baby Nitzan was kept for observation and Yedaya is currently being treated in the Intensive Care Unit.

This evening, sirens rang in the area around Hadassah in Ein Kerem as a rocket barrage came from Gaza; the Iron Dome system shot down the rockets.
