Molotov cocktails are regularly thrown by Palestinians in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
Palestinians threw stones and Molotov cocktails at Israeli vehicles Thursday evening, in the eastern-Jerusalem Jewish neighborhood of Ma’ale ha-Zeitim near the Arab village of Silwan. The incident was captured by a security camera.
The CCTV clearly shows a group of Palestinians approaching a highway in the neighborhood with stones, firecrackers and Molotov cocktails in their hands. They can be seen hurling them onto cars and pedestrians and then running away.
Since the beginning of Ramadan about two weeks ago, there has been an increase in violent incidents across the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
