B'Tselem offices in Jerusalem destroyed by fire

The offices of the Israeli human rights organization B'Tselem in Jerusalem were destroyed tonight by fire, probably as the result of arson. The second Tweet shows the destroyed inside of the office. The same office building also contains the offices of the organization that runs the Hand in Hand bilingual (Arabic/Hebrew) school.
From the B'Tselem Facebook page:

My friend Batya Kallus wrote on Facebook:
The smell of the fire and smoke is lingering in my head after standing outside on the sidewalk as the fire department broke windows in Btselem's offices to allow the smoke to escape.
