Arab terrorists hurled on Sunday three Molotov cocktails at houses in the Jewish area of the Abu Tor neighborhood in Jerusalem southwest of the Old City, causing a balcony to catch fire.

A baby that was in the apartment was moderately injured due to smoke inhalation.

The attack took place following a prolonged power outage which caused neighborhood security cameras to stop functioning. 

The fire on the balcony was extinguished by a security guard and a resident, who were present at the scene and noticed the flames.
