(JNS.org) Unknown assailants tried to set a Bat Yam restaurant on fire early Tuesday, just more than a week after 20-year-old IDF Sgt. Tomer Hazan was lured to the West Bank and murdered by a Palestinian coworker illegally employed by the establishment.
Last month, 42-year-old Palestinian terrorist Nidal Amar allegedly murdered Hazan and buried his body. A canister of flammable fluid was tossed into the restaurant and set on fire around 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday. The flames were doused before any damage was caused. The owner of the restaurant, Tzachi Antebbi, told Israel Hayom that a lit cigarette had caused the fire. But Tel Aviv Police said the incident was definitely a case of attempted arson.
