JERUSALEM (JTA) — Two of five American yeshiva students who were attacked in the West Bank suffered moderate injuries.

The students were attacked with rocks and firebombs after accidentally entering the Palestinian city of Hebron on Thursday night while on their way to the Cave of the Patriarchs.

The two students were injured after the car they were riding in caught fire, Ynet reported.

A local resident protected the five students in his home until they were evacuated by Israeli troops.
