Nine Palestinian youths from the West Bank and east Jerusalem were arrested for allegedly taking part in three separate incidents involving the throwing of Molotov cocktails at Jewish Israelis, the authorities announced on Sunday.

Details of the case were under a media gag order.

The suspects, which include four minors, were allegedly involved in the firebombing that took place in the Jerusalem district of Atarot. One woman suffered moderate injuries as a result of the attack.
