A Molotov cocktail was thrown Saturday evening at the roof of Rabbi Meir Ba’al Hanes synagogue in Jaffa. The building was empty at the time and there were no reports of casualties. Firefighters, police and medical teams were rushed to the scene.

The incident comes a day after two cemeteries, one Muslim and the other Christian, were vandalized by graffiti that said “Death to the Arabs”, and “price tag”. Headstones were smashed and racist slogans were spray-painted on graves.
