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.

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

Four Eritrean migrants were injured a month ago when their Jerusalem apartment was set alight. There also have been several arson incidents against African migrants in Tel Aviv.
