Muslims suspected of setting Christmas trees on fire in Arab-Israeli city

Christmas trees outside two churches in the Arab-Israeli city of Sakhnin in the lower Galilee were set on fire this weekend.

One tree was set up outside a Catholic church, and the second had been put up by a Greek Orthodox church.

Security cameras caught the second attempt, which took place at around 3 a.m. on Saturday.

Police were called to both sites and have opened an investigation.
