Two Injured in Yerushalayim Firebombings

YERUSHALAYIM -

Two firebombings in Yerushalayim and near the capital on Thursday left two Israelis injured, though b’chasdei Shamayim, not seriously.

In the first incident, police gave chase to youths throwing stones at the edge of Isawiya in eastern Yerushalayim. While in pursuit, firebombs were thrown at them, and one of the officers was taken to a local hospital for treatment of a minor leg wound.

In a separate incident on Thursday, on the road between Yerushalayim and Ma’aleh Adumim, assailants threw a firebomb that wounded a 40-year-old man. MDA paramedics treated the man, who sustained a light wound to his leg, and evacuated him to Shaarei Zedek Medical Center.
