VIDEO: Firebombs hurled at right-wing activist's house in East Jerusalem

Two masked men coming from Silwan threw Molotov cocktails in what Jerusalem councilman Aryeh King says is the 49th attack on his home since August.

Two Molotov cocktails were hurled at Jerusalem councilman Aryeh King's house in Ma'ale ha-Zeitim on Tuesday night.



The firebombs thrown at the right-wing activist's home in the East Jerusalem neighborhood set laundry hung to dry in the porch on fire, but no one was hurt.


The incident was documented by security cameras. The footage shows two masked men running from the direction of Silwan towards the house, throwing the Molotov cocktails and then running away.

King's wife, who was home during the incident, called the police.


According to King, "since August last year there have been 49 attacks on the house - these are the ones reported to police. It doesn't include times we came home, like during Passover, and saw stones on the porch. Despite all of that, we do not know of one suspect brought in front of a judge."


King, who was a short distance away from the house when the attack occurred, chased the perpetrators but failed to catch the two men.


In addition to the firebombs, flares were fired at houses in the neighborhood from the direction of Arab neighborhood Ras al-Amud.
