Unknown vandals on Saturday night burnt several Torah books at the Shas party headquarters in Or Yehuda, Israel Radio reported.
Shas MK Ariel Atias said the incident is a result of months of incitement against spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef and the Shas movement.
Attias said that we have seen in the past that words can become actions, and now we see that again. He added that the scenes of vandalism are reminiscent of scenes the Jewish people would prefer to forget, Israel Radio quoted him as saying.
