Three Arab youths in the Silwan neighborhood of east Jerusalem were taken for questioning by police late on Tuesday night after police caught them in possession of eleven Molotov cocktails.

The youths admitted they were planning on throwing the Molotov cocktails at patrols of border police later that night.

At the end of January, Silwan activists claimed that a group of youths had used Molotov cocktails to ignite a tent belonging to border patrol police.
