(International Christian Concern) Last week, the tomb of Esther and Mordecai in Iran’s Hamadan was set on fire on the 72nd anniversary of the creation of the State of Israel. The Director-General of Hamadan’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Department announced that the fire only affected the annex building rather than the main site.
Two other religious sites, a Hindu temple and a Christian cemetery, were also set ablaze in the following days. However, the news is overshadowed by the fire at the tomb of Esther and Mordecai. Local police are investigating the event, and surveillance footage shows an individual at the scene.
