Two convictions fighting fires in the Old City of Jerusalem were arrested Thursday, police said.

On Wednesday, two convicts, one a rabbi, were arrested after they set a fire on a synagogue in the al-Aqsa neighborhood of the Old Town, police spokesperson Luba Samri said.

Police say the men were members of a group that set a small fire on Friday at a nearby synagogue.

No one was injured, and the fire was put out.

Samri would not comment on the details of the fire, saying she was not authorized to talk about the investigation.

The arrests were made after the fire on Thursday.

Samri said the men are expected to appear in court on Friday morning.

A number of Jews were killed in the blaze on Friday, according to Samri, who added that there were no injuries to civilians.

Samourai said the Jewish community was shocked and saddened by the events.
