Jerusalem Arabs hurled a firebomb at a “pillbox” guard tower at the Jewish neighborhood of Ma’aleh HaZeitim (Ras al Amud) guardhouse Thursday afternoon.
No one was injured, but the guard tower was damaged. Firefighting crews put out the fire.
Rock-throwing ambushes are common in the neighborhood, which is under the sovereignty of Israel but where Arabs frequently riot.
