JENIN (Ma’an) -- Arsonists set alight a municipality building in the northern West Bank on Monday morning, before firefighters brought the blaze under control.

Assailants had also opened the gas canister in the mayors office, but it was discovered by firefighters who brought the blaze under control, averting an explosion.
