WATCH – Arab Terrorists Hurl Firebomb at Jerusalem IDF Base

Arab terrorists threw a firebomb at the IDFs Ofrit base in Jerusalem on Thursday night, causing a fire to break out in a forested area near the base.

Several firefighting teams arrived on the scene shortly after the fire broke out in an effort to put the blaze out.

Firefighters said they did not believe that there was any danger the flames would reach the base, but said that they had taken preventive measures to stop the blaze from spreading in the direction of the base, just in case.

The base is located on Mount Scopus, near Hadassah Hospital and HebrewUniversity’s Mount Scopus campus.

Security officials have opened an investigation to determine if the firebomb was part of an ongoing series of attacks by Arab terrorists against Israeli targets in Jerusalem.
