Police on Thursday were checking suspicions that Palestinians burned Jewish holy books in a yeshiva erected by right-wing activists in the ruins of the settlement of Homesh, in northern Samaria. The settlers claimed that they left the yeshiva for several hours a few days ago, and upon returning, found that the holy ark had been taken out and books that were inside had been torn and torched. Police have launched an investigation, but no arrests have yet been made. The Homesh First group called on the government to respond by constructing a permanent building for the yeshiva.
