A 16-year-old male east Jerusalem resident from Isawiya was arrested by police this week for throwing a firebomb at Hadassah University Medical Center on Mount Scopus last month, police said on Wednesday.
According to police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, on the night of June 27 the unidentified suspect caused damage to several cars and a perimeter fence before fleeing the scene. No one was wounded in the attack, Rosenfeld said, adding that the teen was convicted of another firebombing in the area last year.
The suspect was arraigned by a Jerusalem Magistrate Court judge on Wednesday.
“Police continue to carry out patrols and investigations to prevent terrorist attacks in the Isawiya area,” Rosenfeld said.
