A 44-year-old man was moderately burned Thursday after he was attacked with an ignited firebomb (Molotov cocktail) hurled at him in the Silwan section of Jerusalem, just outside the walls of the Old City.

The victim was treated at the scene and then taken to Jerusalem’s Sha’are Zedek Medical Center with burns on the lower section of his body, where he is listed in fair condition.


Israeli police and Border Guard Police officers who arrived at the scene of the attack set out to search for the attacker. An investigation into the incident has been launched.
