Apartment firebombed in Jewish neighborhood of eastern Jerusalem


JERUSALEM (JTA) — An apartment in a Jewish neighborhood of eastern Jerusalem was firebombed.

A Molotov cocktail caused the balcony of an apartment in Armon HaNatziv to catch fire on Saturday night. There were no injuries reported.

Israel Police and Border Patrol units searched the nearby neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber for suspects.

The building has been hit with rocks in the past and a firecracker recently was thrown at the building, according to Ynet.

The attack came days after a car in the West Bank was hit with a firebomb, severely injuring an 11-year-old girl and lightly injuring her father.
