ZARQA — A fire erupted inside a canteen in an UNRWA-run girls school in the Hiteen Refugee Camp on Wednesday.

Civil Defence Department staff managed to contain the blaze and prevent it from spreading to other school facilities, while no injuries were reported.

Security forces found a bottle of kerosene in the canteen, while the doors were broken, which points to arson, according to Ruseifa Police Station Director Col. Ziad Bakir.

A committee was formed to investigate the incident.
