On Monday Jerusalem police arrested two youths, ages 21 and 18, who are suspected of arson in the Beitar Jerusalem training facilities in the Bayit Vegan neighborhood of Jerusalem late on Saturday night.

 Firefighters had the blaze under control by early Sunday morning. The building also had graffiti on it with the words "Red Jerusalem," in reference to Monday's game against Hapoel Tel Aviv, whose color is red. The fire caused damage to the team's kitchen and meeting room. The two youths are from the center of the country, police said.
