2 PA Minors Arrested for Firebombings and Stonings

Two minors from the Palestinian Authority faced a hearing, Monday morning in a military court at the Opher prison camp outside Jerusalem, for extension of their remand, after they were arrested, Thursday, on suspicion of throwing rocks and firebombs on Highway 465 next to the Bir Zit Bridge.

The Samaria (Shomron)-Judea police said the suspects were found hiding in the bushes at the scene of a firebombing of an Israeli bus. Two other firebombs were found nearby, ready to be thrown. A search of their bodies revealed a knife hidden in a cellular phone. Under interrogation, they admitted to two other incidents of firebombing and ten incidents of throwing rocks at cars on that stretch of road.
