The Gush Etzion Regional Council charged that Palestinians on Friday night burned a pile of Jewish prayer books outside a small temporary synagogue in the West Bank.

The structure was unscathed. It is located outside the boundaries of the Karmei Tzur settlement near Hebron, close to the spot where the bodies of the three kidnapped teenagers Naftali Fraenkel, 16, Gilad Shaar, 16, and Eyal Yifrach, 19, were found in the summer of 2014.
