Jerusalem District police on Sunday arrested two minors from the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Isawiya suspected of involvement in an attack on a gas station in the capital's French Hill earlier this month.

Police have now arrested a total of eight people suspected of involvement in the incident.

All eight suspects were expected to face a remand hearing at Jerusalem Magistrate's Court on Sunday.

In the incident in question, a number of masked assailants looted a French Hill gas station and attempted to set off an explosion using firebombs.
