A new form of terrorist activity has recently begun to plague the communities of Judea and Samaria. These attacks take the form of piles of several stones placed on the road during the night, with the objective of causing car accidents. The phenomenons of stone barriers placed on the road are becoming wider spread. They are now being discovered on a weekly basis. Several cars have been damaged so far. Last week, the latest barrier was discovered on the way to Harasha, in Benyamin, very close to the residents’ homes. Four cars were damaged. Security forces searched for possible suspects. The barrier itself was removed by the residents.

This attack was the last in a series which have occurred over the past months. Security officials told Tazpit News Agency that it is believed to be the work of youngsters from nearby village. No assailants have been arrested so far.
