Gate to Palestinian Home in West Bank Set Ablaze, Latest in Spate of Attacks on Palestinians

JERUSALEM — The Israeli military says a gate to a Palestinian home in the West Bank has been set on fire.

The military said Tuesday no one was injured in the overnight attack near the West Bank city of Nablus and no suspects were apprehended.

But suspicion has fallen on Jewish extremists.

The attack was the third to target Palestinians since late last week.

On Thursday, a firebomb was thrown at a taxi, injuring six Palestinians inside. On Friday, a group of Jewish youths beat up a Palestinian teenager in Jerusalem, where he remains in hospital.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to bring the people responsible for the firebombing to justice. Vice Premier Moshe Yaalon described the two weekend attacks as “terrorist acts.”
