Firebomb thrown at Israeli vehicle on Rte 443 to Jerusalem
Palestinians hurled a firebomb at a vehicle driving past the Dor gas station on Rte 443 to Jerusalem Wednesday night. No one was hurt. The attack occurred shortly after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu vowed “zero tolerance” henceforth for Palestinian rock, fire bomb and knife attacks in the Jerusalem area. These attacks have escalated sharply in recent weeks, especially around this gas station, where the army is responsible for security.
South of Jerusalem, the Palestinians of the Al Aida village went on a rock-throwing rampage against border policemen, who shot a youth about to throw a fire bomb. The rioters were dispersed with crowd control measures and the boy taken to hospital. .
