The community will be aware of the recent arson attack, and a previous attempted arson attack, on local Kosher restaurants. We have spoken with senior officers at GMP who are treating this with the utmost seriousness and the community can be assured that a full and thorough investigation will take place. This includes considering it a hate crime based on the perspective of those affected.
