Frum Guy Set Fire to Apartment that Seriously Injured Cook For Mir Yeshivah in Yerushalayim

In a shocking development, the preliminary investigation into the fire in an apartment on Yosef Mizrachi Street in the Beis Yisrael neighborhood of Yerushalayim on Wednesday, 13 Menachem Av, was the result of arson.
An elderly woman, 80, who cooks in the nearby Yeshivas Mir Yerushalayim, along with a 30-year grandson who shares the apartment and learns in the Yeshiva sustained serious injury in the fire. Others were injured in the fire as well, B’chasdei Hashem, less seriously. 

On that night, a granddaughter also slept over. According to Kikar Shabbos News report released on Thursday afternoon, a male arrived at the apartment at about 4:00AM Wednesday morning, carrying a flammable substance with him. The suspect is not related to her but is an area resident who comes to visit periodically.
The suspect, ‘Y’, who is reportedly medicated for psychiatric problems (not confirmed), broke into the apartment according to statements from family members quoted in the report. The granddaughter woke up from the noise and heard him shout “get out or die!”. The granddaughter left the apartment and Y locked the door from inside and set the apartment on fire.
