The victim in the incident was reportedly in light condition and was evacuated to Hadassah University Medical Center with a head injury.

In an incident reported earlier in the day, National Fire and Rescue Service personnel were called to the Jerusalem District Courthouse to contain a blaze after a Palestinian youth threw a Molotov cocktail at a guard post located in the courtyard.

The bottle exploded outside the guard post and only caused minimal damage to the structure.
