After relative calm, Jewish residence firebombed in Jerusalem’s Abu Tor neighborhood

Two firebombs thrown at a Jewish residence in Jerusalem’s integrated Abu Tor neighborhood Saturday night shattered a tenuous calm in the community, largely sustained by months of heavy policing.

At approximately 9 p.m., police say unidentified suspects targeted the house, located on a street adjacent to numerous Arab residences, setting its exterior on fire, before fleeing into the night.

Fire trucks arrived at the scene within minutes to extinguish the blaze, as responding officers searched the area for the assailants to no avail. No injuries were reported, police said.
