Terrified Jewish nursery school and kindergarten children were rushed into bomb shelters in Jerusalem’s Maaleh HaZeitim neighborhood after 10 masked Arabs attacked the Jerusalem neighborhood’s complex with Molotov cocktails, fireworks and stones on Tuesday.I visited one of the apartment complexes the last time I was in Israel. You might wonder why Jews would want to live there, especially after looking at how the neighborhood looks from the angle of this video. But the view on the other side is what is stunning.
The Arabs specifically targeted toddlers from a nursery “Mishpacton” who were playing outside.
The teachers rushed the children inside as the Arabs began throwing explosive and rocks at the children, an angry resident told JewishPress.com.
Two other schools also rushed their children indoors as explosives landed near the schools.
The neighborhood housing complex has 4 nursery and kindergarten schools.
The crying children were rushed into the school’s bomb shelters to protect them from the attack and the loud explosions.
The police took 7 minutes to arrive. But before responding, police asked residents if anyone was actually injured in the attack.
When they did arrive, the Arab attackers ran.
Arabs have been targeting Jews in the area, both dead and alive, quite a bit recently.
Maaleh HaZeitim is located across the street from the ancient, Jewish, Mount of Olives cemetery.
On Rosh Hashana, Arabs desecrated the Gur Hassidim section of the cemetery, destroying 40 graves.
Here is a video of the view from one of the synagogues inside the complex:
The kids playing on the roof have an equally majestic view of Jerusalem:
