Woman Hospitalized After Firebombing

YERUSHALAYIM -

Violence continued in Israel on Monday as two people were injured in a firebomb attack near the Beit Hanina intersection in Yerushalayim.

A woman, 27, who was in a moving vehicle when the attack occurred on Monday night,  was rushed to Hadassah Ein Keren Medical Center in stable condition with burns to her body.

Her husband, who was also in the vehicle, escaped uninjured, though the car was destroyed in the subsequent fire.

The damaged vehicle also hit a pedestrian, who sustained light injuries.

Police were searching for the assailant.

In a separate incident, Border Police opened fire on a Palestinian who tried to escape from custody, wounding him in the lower part of his body. He had been arrested for questioning on past allegations.

Earlier in the day, another Palestinian was arrested when he was caught carrying an axe, which he claimed was for self defense.
