The incident occured four months ago when the Cave of Patriarchs was open to Jewish worshippers. The girls entered the cenotaph of Isaac, which is used for Muslim prayers, took two Koran books from a nearby stand and proceeded to tear the pages. Later on, they hurled the books, which are sacred to Islam, at the wall.
Midway through the desecration, they were noticed by an Israel Border Guard officer who did not intervene.
Another officer who was at the scene approached the girls and stalled them.
And yet, since the event the girls have not been summoned by the police for further investigation.
