Baby Among Three Injured in Jerusalem Firebomb Attack

The Holy Land is tense today, after two Israeli policemen were murdered at the Temple Mount. The Times of Israel reports on victims of another terrorist attack - a family, including an infant, firebombed near the Mount of Olives:

An infant girl was among three people injured in a firebomb attack in Jerusalem on Friday, hours after two Israeli police officers were killed in an attack by three Israeli-Arab assailants on the Temple Mount.

The Molotov cocktail was thrown at a family traveling in a community security vehicle in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, right near the Mount of Olives.

Paramedics who rushed to the scene treated the baby and the two adults for smoke inhalation. The child was then transported to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem.
