Palestinian Authority Arabs throwing Molotov cocktails at passing Israeli cars in Samaria Thursday ignited a forest fire near the Jewish community of Neve Tzuf, located in the Binyamin region north of Jerusalem.
Volunteers quickly arrived on the scene and began to extinguish the blaze to prevent flames from spreading to nearby homes, and firefighters arrived to assist.
No injuries were reported, but heavy damaged was caused to the greenery. Security forces searched for the attackers and found remnants of more Molotov cocktails, but no arrests were made.
A spokesperson for the Binyamin Regional Fire Department told Tazpit News Agency that three teams were required to gain full control of the fire.
