The so-called “quiet Intifada” shattered the quiet in the home of Avi Zarbiv in Beit El as Arab infiltrators hurled firebombs that shattered a window.

B’chasdei Shamayim, no one was hurt in the attack on Monday night.

Arabs from the village of Dura al-Kara in Binyamin were believed to have perpetrated it.

“The Molotov cocktail bombs hit my balcony and my bedroom window. The balcony window broke and caught fire,” Zarbiv told Arutz Sheva. “We heard an explosion outside the house and then saw the balcony and window on fire.”

The assailants fled, leaving behind a PLO flag.

Security forces arrived immediately thereafter, but not in time to catch them.

In other terror incidents, a bus driver was lightly injured by glass shards Monday evening when Arabs threw rocks at his vehicle near the Naomi Shemer Tunnel inYerushalayim. The bus was en route to Maalei Adumim.

The same night, Arabs threw firebombs towards Beit Ovadia, a home in the Shiloach  (Silwan) neighborhood in eastern Yerushalayim, where several Jewish families moved in the day before. Police dispersed the Arabs at the scene. No injuries were reported.
