Just before 4 p.m. on Thursday Jerusalem district Magen David Adom (MDA) paramedics were called up, after an Arab terrorist wounded one person by throwing a firebomb on the road leading to Ma'ale Adumim, to the east of the capital.

Paramedics were providing treatment at the site to the lightly wounded victim.

The current wave of Arab terror that has already seen 29 murdered since last September has included numerous forms of lethal attack, including rocks, shootings, stabbings and car ramming attacks.

Firebomb attacks have also proven to be just as lethal and damaging, with one of the most shocking examples of Molotov cocktail assaults coming in December 2014 when Ayala Shapira, then 11-years-old, was seriously burned in an attack on her family car.

Shapira was critically wounded in the attack, and her father was lightly wounded, as their car was set on fire by firebombs hurled by Arab terrorists as they drove to their home in El-Matan in Samaria.
