A car with Yeshiva Bochrim narrowly escaped a lynching on Thursday afternoon.
According to breaking reports and initial photos from the scene, it appears a vehicle with Yeshiva students lost their way near Hebron while driving to Meoras HaMachpela, and entered an Arab village.
Their car was surrounded and ransacked, with their tefillin and black hats strewn all over the street. The mob of attackers then firebombed the vehicle.
It appears that the IDF was able to rescue the boys, who are now outside the village, and inside an armored IDF vehicle.
One of them, has suffered light injuries.
Police released a statement saying that the vehicle was occupied by 5 Americans.
