Unknown assailants threw six firebombs at a Chabad synagogue in Moscow on Monday night, the Hasidic religious movement reported.

No one was hurt in the attack on the Jewish place of worship in Moscow’s northern Otradnaya district and the building sustained little damage.

Local police were quoted as saying by Chabad.org that the attack was done in retaliation for the recent murder convictions of a neo-Nazi gang.

Russian authorities reportedly offered Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar assurances they would find the assailants.
