Jerusalem police arrested a group of 11 Arab teenagers between the ages of 14 and 17 for frequently throwing stones and Molotov cocktails in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan over the past few weeks.

According to the police, the youth would buy firecrackers and explosives from a store in Ras Al Amud, and the gas from a local gas station in Silwan. They would assemble the Molotov cocktail and throw them at the Beit Yehonatan apartment, a heavily fortified seven-story apartment building that houses seven Jewish families.

The owner of the store in Ras Al Amud was also arrested for selling explosives to minors. The police, who arrested the group over the past few days, are expected to indict the group this week.
