Two Arab Israeli children were injured by a Molotov cocktail that was thrown into their residence in the Ajami neighborhood of Jaffa on Friday night as riots between Arabs and Jews continue to grip Israel. 
MDA medics evacuated a 12-year-old boy in moderate condition with burns to his torso and a 10-year-old girl with a head wound to Sheba Medical Center in Ramat Gan. 
The injured children’s father told Haaretz after the incident that “we were sitting in the living room, suddenly we saw the fire coming in here from the living room window. I put the boy in the bathtub. At the last minute, after I put out some of the fire, the neighbors came to help.”
The grandfather reportedly told Haaretz that “I live near. I tried to leave the house to help the children, I wanted to come and the police did not let me pass. I tried to explain to them that a disaster had happened. They did not let me go.”

Security footage from the area showed two men in hoodies fleeing the scene. Police have opened an investigation into the incident.

Molotov cocktails were reportedly thrown at two additional houses in the neighborhood, but caused no damage to persons or property, according to Haaretz. Additional searches of the area revealed that the rioters had apparently left behind more Molotov cocktails.

Later on Friday night in Jaffa, Channel 13 News reporter Omri Maniv was assaulted in his car by rioters, who broke the mirrors on his car and sprayed him with pepper spray, Magen David Adom reported.
MDA paramedics reportedly treated him at the scene for light injuries.

Three firefighting teams arrived to the scene to put out the blaze. Another fire was also set a two-story building in Lod, with some six people suffering from smoke inhalation after being evacuated.
