Two Arabs held for planned Jerusalem firebombing

Two 17-year-old Arab teens were arrested Sunday outside the Old City of Jerusalem after five firebombs were found in their possession, police said. The two suspects, who were apprehended outside the Damascus Gate during a routine border police search, told police investigators that they planned to hurl the ready to use Molotov cocktails at police after evening prayers on the Temple Mount in revenge for the arrest of a brother of one of the two suspects who was wanted for security-related offenses, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said.
