Three Molotov cocktails were hurled on Friday night at an apartment in the Pisgat Ze'ev neighborhood in Jerusalem. No one was hurt, but one of the devices lightly damaged the kitchen of the apartment when it burst, Israel Radio reported. Police said that the motive for the act was most likely nationalistic. The perpetrators fled the scene, heading in the direction of the Shu'afat refugee camp. Police forces began a search for them in the area. The attack came in the wake of a fatal police shooting of a Jerusalem Arab during a routine arrest operation which turned violent and which spurred a night of Arab rioting on Wednesday night.
