Jewish student's dormitory door ‘set on fire’ at Drexel University in the US
A major section of the world has condemned Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel and are supporting the ongoing military operation by Israel. But some vested interests and people have sided with Hamas and put the blame on Israel for the current situation with Palestinians. Amid the Israel-Hamas conflict, there have been reports of attack on Israelis in USA.
In a startling incident, a Jewish student's dorm door was allegedly set on fire in Drexel University on Tuesday night. As per reports, the incident happened at Race Hall at 3300 Race Street in University City.
"The fire was quickly extinguished. Philadelphia Fire Department responded, and it was determined that decorations on a residence hall door had been intentionally set on fire," an alert about the incident stated.
The University's president John Fry highlighted the incident in a complaint letter to the college community.
“Unfortunately, we were made aware of a distressing situation that included destruction inside one of our residence halls. Thankfully, no one was injured. We are investigating to determine if bias, discrimination, or hate, which we do not tolerate at Drexel, was the motivation behind this incident. The investigation into this incident is ongoing, and we will update the community once it has concluded,” wrote Fry in the letter.
