Vandals attempted to set fire to a 25-meter advertisement billboard of Israeli model Bar Refaeli at the Glilot intersection for the second time on Tuesday. The first attempt to burn the billboard also ended unsuccessfully last Saturday

 

 

Herzliya firefighters rushed to the scene to put out the fire. The fire caused damage to the lower part of the billboard. Vandals also sprayed a Star of David and the writing "Am Israel Chai" on it.

Firefighters said that the reason the fire didn't spread upward and did not engulf the entire billboard was because the sign was made of fire resistant materials.

 

In both cases, the findings suggested arson and police opened an investigation. The motive behind the act is yet unclear.
