Hand grenade thrown at house of senior Defense Min. official again

Another training hand grenade was thrown towards the Sderot house of a senior Defense Ministry official, less than a month after the official was first targeted, Israeli media reported.

Earlier in January, a hand grenade was thrown towards the official's house, who told Israel Police attempts to hurt him and his family were made several times over the last 18 months.

Police arrested a suspect, a man in his 20s, shortly after.

The official was not hurt in the incident due to being on vacation abroad with his partner. However, police reported on a number of victims in the area suffering from trauma due to the blast.
