More Molotov Cocktails Thrown at Jerusalem Jews by Arab Neighbors

Maale HaZeitim

The community of Maale HaZeitim in Jerusalem was again targeted with Molotov cocktails in the early hours of Tuesday morning.  Two homemade firebombs were hurled at the homes of residents in the community, just a 15 minute walk from the Kotel in Jerusalem’s Old City.  Damage was reported to property.  There were no injuries.

On April 16, the community was attacked in a barrage of between 7 -10 firebombs.  Guards on the site shot in the air, after which the single attacker fled on foot.  When police came to investigate, they spent a significant portion of their time interrogating the guards as to why they fired their weapons, according to reports by residents at the scene.

No injuries were reported in that attack, though residents reported that children witnessing the attack became hysterical.  Damage to property resulted from fires lit by the bombs.

On February 24, two United States Congressman on tour in the area were targeted in a rock throwing attack a few feet away from the entrance to the neighborhood.

Maale HaZeitim is located on the Mount of Olives, next to the historic Mount of Olives cemetery, containing the graves of Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak HaCohen Kook, the Ohr HaChaim, Henrietta Szold, Eliezer Ben Yehuda and other notable Jewish figures.

  1. It is somewhat strange, that the news reported by Bat are so selective. Some of the "happenings " have never really happened but in exchange some which have happened are not reported.

    Fortunately there is a website called "honest reporting.
