UPDATE: According to The Express, Jewish students took refuge in the building's basement during the attack. Police have confirmed the use of Molotov-style gasoline bombs in bottles.

"There are several molotov cocktails that have been thrown against the synagogue," said a police spokesman. "It's about bottles and gasoline."

Two cars in the building's parking lot were reportedly damaged, but the building itself was unharmed and no injuries have been reported.
