Firebomb Attack in Jerusalem’s Gilo Neighborhood

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

An unidentified attacker or attackers hurled firebombs in the southern Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo on Wednesday night.

The incendiary bottles (Molotov cocktails) were thrown in the area of Dov Yosef Street. No one was physically injured in the attack, according to Jerusalem police.

Update: Police have determined that the fire was not started by Molotov cocktails as originally thought. Youths from the nearby neighborhood of Sharfat ignited a couch, and then threw parts of it down the hill.

The firebombing did, however, ignite a brush fire and no details were available regarding property damage as a result of the attack.

Large security forces were deployed to search for the perpetrators as fire and rescue services extinguished the blaze.

No details were released about the extent of property damage.

Firebomb Photos Latest ‘Rage’ Among Arab Terrorists

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

The latest “rage” among budding Arab terrorists involves shooting — from a camera, that is.

The firebomb (Molotov cocktail) is photographed just prior to being hurled at Israelis traveling on the roads.

The photo is then uploaded to Arab social media sites on the Internet.

Late Tuesday night Israelis came under firebomb attack on Loop 45, near Atarot, but no injuries were reported. Sure enough, shortly after the attack, alleged photos of the bottles used in the attack appeared in Arabic-language social media, which claimed the bottles were just “thrown away” after being photographed.

Earlier in the evening, photos appeared on the Internet of firebombs that were hurled at Israelis who were attacked on Highway 443.

Friday, November 27th, 2015

The government has bought more than 1,000 new riot-protection kits to help soldiers and police deal with terrorists armed with different kinds of weapons,. Israel Defense reported.

Lior Textile Company designed the modular kits. They were tested for several months and have been approved by a laboratory in Europe, where standards are very high. Security personnel now are using the kits in “live tests.”

Israel Defense reported:

One of the options offered by the modular design of the kit is the option of using it in different combat situations, as it may be adapted and used in conjunction with bullet and knife proof protective vests supplied by the same company.

The kit includes all of the protective elements for all parts of the user’s body, as well as purpose-designed flame-resistant coveralls (providing protection against Molotov cocktails) made from Nomex fabric by DuPont.
