African Couple Hurt in Jerusalem Arson Attack

Two African migrants were injured after a fire was allegedly set at the entrance to their Jerusalem apartment.

The fire broke out early Thursday morning; firefighters reportedly found rags soaked in an accelerant at the entrance to the apartment.

The residents of the apartment, a man and his pregnant wife, both from Eritrea, were taken to Hadassah-Ein Kerem Hospital suffering from moderate burns and smoke inhalation.

One month ago, four Eritrean migrants were injured when their Jerusalem apartment was set alight; there have also been several arson incidents against African migrants in Tel Aviv.
