Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat condemned an apparent arson attack against a Greek Orthodox seminary in the capital on Thursday morning.

"There is no room for such deplorable activity in Jerusalem, we must eradicate this behavior and bring those responsible to justice," Barkat said.

The mayor spoke with the Jerusalem Chief of Police and asked him to speed up the investigation. "We must quickly restore the peace and coexistence in Jerusalem," said Barkat.
