Vandals burned Jewish prayer books and graffitied the phrase “Hail Satan” in an attack on a Netanya synagogue on Saturday, police said in a statement.

A pentagram was also discovered sprayed onto a wall.

Police said that they have opened an investigation into the incident at the Orthodox place of worship on MacDonald Street, popular among English-speaking residents of the coastal city.

In the statement released Sunday, police cryptically noted that a discarded bra was found at the scene.
