A Conservative synagogue in southern Israel was burned.

The fire set Monday night to the Shira Hadasha synagogue in Arad in the Negev scorched the outside of the building, but was extinguished before it damaged the inside, the Jerusalem Post reported Wednesday.

The fire was started when a flammable liquid was poured into a hole drilled in a wall, the Post reported.

The attack comes a year after another attempt to burn down the synagogue and days after an attempted break-in there, according to the Post.

Shira Hadasha is the only non-Orthodox synagogue in Arad, the Post reported. Israel has 60 Conservative synagogues.

Police have no suspects in the attack, according to the newspaper.
