Three people were injured in a Jerusalem firebombing attack on a car Monday night.
A 27-year-old Israeli woman was moderately hurt by the Molotov cocktail, suffering burns on her body. The woman and her husband abandoned their burning car, which proceeded to roll down and hit a 20-year-old pedestrian, who was lightly hurt.
A third man was lightly injured after he tried to extinguish the car.
Police were searching for the assailants.
The woman was evacuated to the Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem, and the injured men were transferred to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center for treatment.
The attack took place near the Beit Hanina neighborhood in East Jerusalem.
Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat condemned the attack and ordered increased security in northern Jerusalem.
“Every stone and Molotov cocktail that is thrown is a serious terror attack that we will not accept,” he said. “We will not give in to terror and we will not change our routine.”

The Jerusalem attack came days after a fatal firebombing in the Palestinian village of Duma in the West Bank, allegedly by Jewish extremists, killed an 18-month-old baby and left his parents and four-year-old brother badly hurt.
Deputy Defense Minister Eli Ben Dahan (Jewish Home) on Monday urged “all those who condemned the terror attacks over the weekend to condemn the attack that took place this evening, which injured two people, and by a miracle, did not lead to deaths.”
“There is no Jewish terror or Arab terror, there is just terror — and it kills,” he said.
