Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who visited a Jewish woman who was injured by a firebomb attack in Jerusalem on Monday said he was waiting for the international community to condemn the attack as it had previously condemned the arson attack in the West Bank that claimed the life of a Palestinian toddler, Ali Dawabsha.

"A few days ago I visited the injured brother of the baby Ali who died in a terror attack that targeted Arabs. Today I visited Inbar [Inbar Azrak], a young woman who was injured from a firebomb by terrorists targeting Jews. Ali's brother is four-years-old, Inbar is a young mother of three, ages, two, three and four," Netanyahu said.

"Terrorism is terrorism is terrorism. Our policy is zero-tolerance for terrorism regardless of background. We condemn it and fight it in equal measure," he added. 

Netanyahu said he was waiting for the international community to join him in condemning the attack against the Jewish woman. 

"Days ago the international community joined me in condemning the terrorist attack that targeted Arabs and I expect it now to join me in condemning terror targeting Jews."

"I'm still waiting," Netanyahu said.  

On Monday night, Azrak and her husband were injured in a firebomb attack near the Beit Hanina intersection in the capital.

The incident occurred when a Molotov cocktail was thrown at their moving vehicle. Azrak, 27, was evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in stable condition with burns to her body.

Her husband was unharmed, although the car was completely burnt.
