The Jerusalem studio of Daystar, one of the largest Christian networks in the world, was firebombed over the weekend. The attack destroyed Daystar’s new studio but the network plans to rebuild.

The fire began early Saturday morning when an arsonist threw a firebomb into the facility.

Daystar was in the midst of a major renovation and upgrade of its studio here in Jerusalem overlooking Mount Zion and the Mount of Olives.  The fire destroyed the new work and much of the existing facility.

“The control room I would say is probably totally devastated,” Dave Sharett, the contractor overseeing the renovations told CBN News. “The controls actually start here with the electric panel, the main electric panel and anything plastic is totally melted.”

“It was a beautiful like living room set up, real casual set up, nice chairs, stools, tables, nothing survived.  If it didn’t burn, it melted,” he added.
