3 arrested over firebombing that seriously hurt 12-year-old Arab boy in Jaffa
[IsraelTimes] Police and Shin Bet say suspects are Arab residents of city who mistakenly attacked Arab home during surge of violence in Israel’s ethnically mixed cities.

The Israel Police and Shin Bet security service revealed Wednesday that they have arrested three suspects behind several firekabooms in Jaffa, including one that left a 12-year-old Arab boy seriously injured. It said the suspects were arrested "in recent weeks."

In a joint statement, the Shin Bet and police called the May 14 incident a "terror attack." Muhammad Gintazi was seriously maimed in the Molotov cocktailing, which also lightly injured his 10-year-old sister. The attack came during a spate of ethnic violence in mixed Jewish-Arab cities and elsewhere across Israel last month.

The suspects are Arab residents of Jaffa and prosecutors intend to file "harsh indictments" against them in coming weeks, the statement said.

"In the incident, a number of Molotov cocktails were thrown toward several Jewish homes, and one was thrown toward the home of an Arab family, the Gintazi family," the statement said. It accused the assailants of planning on attacking Jewish homes in Jaffa’s Ajami neighborhood "out of a nationalist motive of Dire Revenge in light of the disturbances in Lod and the violent mostly peaceful incidents on the Temple Mount."

The statement also said the three fled after "understanding their mistake" in accidentally targeting an Arab home, even though they had planned to attack additional Jewish homes.

They will also face weapons charges after police discovered illegal arms that were stashed around the neighborhood.

Muhammad Gintazi arrived at Sheba Medical Center with 12% of his body covered by burns and suffering from smoke inhalation, and he had to be mechanically ventilated and sedated. However,
it's easy to be generous with someone else's money...
doctors have since said he is recovering well.

The attacks came as violence spread across Israel’s mixed Jewish-Arab cities following festivities between Jerusalem police and Paleostinian rioters in and near the al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount — Judaism’s holiest site and Islam’s third-holiest — and the planned eviction of Paleostinians from homes in an East Jerusalem neighborhood.

The violence also sparked an intense 11-day battle between Israel and terror groups in Gazoo
...Hellhole adjunct to Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, inhabited by Gazooks. The place was acquired in the wake of the 1967 War and then presented to Paleostinian control in 2006 by Ariel Sharon, who had entered his dotage. It is currently ruled with an iron fist by Hamaswith about the living conditions you'd expect. It periodically attacks the Hated Zionist Entity whenever Iran needs a ruckus created or the hard boyz get bored, getting thumped by the IDF in return. The ruling turbans then wave the bloody shirt and holler loudly about oppression and disproportionate response...

In Lod, two residents were killed: Musa Hassuna, 32, by a suspected Jewish gunman, and Yigal Yehoshua, 56, by a suspected group of Arab attackers. No charges have been filed in either case, and police say investigations are ongoing.
