Firebomb thrown in West Bank lightly injures one
An Israeli man was lightly injured on Monday after a firebomb was thrown at his car near the West Bank city of Nablus.
The vehicle was heavily damaged after bursting into flames. IDF forces were searching the area for suspects, the army said.
The driver, a resident of a settlement in the Binyamin region, was treated at the scene of the attack and did not require hospital care.
The car was passing the Hawara checkpoint, south of Nablus, when it was struck by the Molotov cocktail and subsequently set ablaze.
Security forces earlier on Monday announced the arrest of a terror cell that carried out a number of firebombings and pipe bomb attacks on a military academy in the West Bank.
The cell had attacked the Elisha academy and the adjacent Halamish settlement, in the Binyamin region, repeatedly during January and February of this year, the Shin Bet said.
It said the suspects were from the Palestinian village of Beit Rima, near Ramallah. They were arrested in a joint Shin Bet - IDF - Israel Police operation.
The six suspects, aged 19 to 23, carried out five attacks during the two-month period, the Shin Bet said, adding that bombs and firebombs were thrown out a vehicle and that the assailants were masked.
