Who set fire to a hareidi girls' school over the weekend? Police say it was likely local juvenile delinquents, but leaders of the Bobov girls' school in Bat Yam said that the two suspects, even if they are guilty, did not act alone; the media, which has in recent weeks been “inciting” against the hareidi community, was guilty as well.
According to school officials, the two youths who are the most likely suspects of the attempted arson were seen on Friday roaming around the school. The two teenagers live in the neighborhood and the school officials recognized them. The youths were seen trying to climb a fence in order to break into the building, and were seen setting off firecrackers in the school's courtyard.
