JERUSALEM (AP) -- The Israeli military says Palestinians hurling stones at cars of Jewish settlers in the West Bank have lightly injured a 4-year-old Israeli boy.

The army says the incident took place at an intersection in a settlement area near the West Bank city of Bethlehem on Sunday. The boy was taken to hospital.

The military says Israeli troops are combing the area for suspects behind the attack.

Earlier in the day, Israeli police said they arrested five Israelis suspected of planning to attack Palestinians in Jerusalem. Police say the five - including four minors - were collecting rocks in a Jerusalem park and were caught carrying two knives.

Police say the Israeli suspects had previously participated in activities of the extremist Jewish group Lehava, which is opposed to Arab-Jewish coexistence.
