JENIN (Ma'an) -- Unidentified arsonists set fire to a kindergarten in the northern occupied West Bank village of Rummana west of Jenin, locals told Ma'an on Sunday morning.

Locals in the village explained that a fire was set to a building that houses Abu Ammar (Yasser Arafat) kindergarten and the Rummana Charitable Society. 

Assailants also smashed the windows of Rummana elementary school.

The civil defense service in Jenin said in a statement that locals managed to control the fire before fire fighters arrived to ensure the fire wouldn't break out again. The statement highlighted that the assailants broke inside the kindergarten's administration office by tearing off the window's security bars, and set a fire inside the room.

Governor of Jenin Ibrahim Ramadan denounced the arson and instructed Palestinian security services to investigate the attack.
