A Palestinian youth attempting to throw a firebomb at a Jewish home in east Jerusalem on Sunday lit himself on fire during the act.

Witness Rachel Fireman told Arutz Sheva that a group of Arab youths hurled rocks and several of the deadly concoctions at Jewish residences, one of which set a nearby stairway alight.

“The Molotov cocktails all exploded, and one exploded on one of them,” said Fireman. “His clothing caught fire and he ran away.”



Police arrived at the scene moments later, and are still searching for the suspects. It remains unclear if the assailant was seriously injured, or sought medical treatment.
