Palestinian Arsonists Burn Down Jewish School in Samaria

“When thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” Isaiah 43:2 (The Israel Bible™)

Palestinian arsonists burned down a Jewish religious school in Israel’s northern Samaria hills Monday, during a “Day of Rage” in support of an ongoing hunger strike by Palestinian terrorists in Israeli prisons.

The arsonists entered the area surrounding Homesh Yeshiva and set the building alight. No injuries were reported. Officials from the school said they expect the IDF to bring the arsonists “to justice,” and vowed to build a larger structure at the same site to replace the destroyed building.

Fulfill Ezekiel's prophecy, replenish the Holy Land's Forests! Plant a tree today!

Jewish residents of Homesh were evicted and had their homes demolished in 2005 as part of the Israeli government’s unilateral disengagement from Gaza as well as four communities in Judea and Samaria.

Member of Knesset Betzalel Smotrich (Jewish Home) said, “The burning of the yeshiva in Homesh is a reminder for us to continue working for the return of the Jewish people to all areas that were destroyed during the [2005] expulsion.” He added, “Every place we leave becomes a place of terror and where holy sites are damaged.”
