A second synagogue in the Iranian city of Shiraz was reportedly attacked last weekend, with vandals damaging Torah scrolls, siddurim and other ritual items.

The incident occurred Sunday night in the city’s Kashi Synagogue, a day before the Hadash Synagogue in Shiraz’s Maleh neighborhood was vandalized Monday afternoon, Israel’s Channel 10 reported. In the purported attack on the Hadash Synagogue, which was first reported earlier this week by Yeshiva World News, two Torah scrolls were found torn to pieces and siddurim were discovered in the bathroom.
