Firebombs Thrown at Jonathan House

Firebombs were thrown, Thursday evening, at Jonathan House in the Jewish-Arab neighborhood of Shiloach (Silwan in Arabic) in eastern Jerusalem. No injuries or damage were reported. Police were sent to search for the perpetrators.

The building, named in honor of Jonathan Pollard, now in his 27th year of a life sentence for passing classified information from the United States to Israel, has been at the center of a controversy for the past couple of years. Neighborhood Arabs oppose the Jewish residence.
