A Palestinian threw acid at a family of Israelis who gave him a ride in their car in the West Bank on Dec. 12 before being shot and wounded, the army said.

“A vehicle carrying a family with four girls picked up a hitchhiker” near a checkpoint outside Bethlehem and close to the Gush Etzion settlement area, the army said in a statement.

“The hitchhiker threw acid on the passengers, injuring them lightly.”

The attacker exited the vehicle and was shot in the leg by a civilian and then arrested. It was unclear how seriously he was wounded.

Israeli public radio said a man and three children were injured in the attack…
