Two Israelis were injured in firebombing attacks in Jerusalem and area on Thursday.

In the first incident, police who observed youth throwing stones on the edges of Isawiya in east Jerusalem, chased them back into the neighborhood.

During the chases, firebombs were thrown at the security forces and one of the police officers sustained a minor wound to his leg. He was evacuated to a Jerusalem hospital.

In a separate incident Thursday, on the road between Ma'aleh Adumin and Jerusalem, assailants threw a firebomb and wounded a
40-year-old man. MDA paramedics treated the man, who sustained a light wound to his leg, and evacuated him to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.
