Israeli extremists set fire to Christian seminary in Jerusalem

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Suspected Israeli extremists set fire to a Greek Orthodox seminary in the Old City of Jerusalem on Thursday and sprayed hate slogans on the walls, police said.

Israeli spokeswoman Luba al-Samri said that the fire was started at 4:00 a.m and caused damage to a bathroom and shower room before firefighters controlled the blaze.

Israeli media reported that the assailants poured flammable liquid into the bathroom window before lighting it and fleeing the scene.

The Orthodox seminary is located near Jaffa Gate.

"Jesus is a son of a whore" and "Redemption of Zion" were sprayed on the walls.

On Tuesday, extremist Jewish settlers set fire to a mosque in the southern West Bank town of al-Jaba west of Bethlehem, locals told Ma'an.

The Palestinian foreign ministry said the attack was tantamount to "an official declaration of religious war," the official WAFA news agency reported.
