Jewish settlers torched a mosque in Al-Mughayyir village near Ramallah on Monday, causing serious damage to the entire structure.

Settlers from nearby settlement outpost Alei Ayin crept into the village which lies 12 miles northeast of Ramallah at 3am and set fire to car tires and threw them into the mosque, said village council head Majdi al-Naasan.

Although worshipers attempted to contain the fire, damage to the mosque was serious. Settlers daubed the walls of the mosque with racist graffiti written in Hebrew.

Palestinians who live near the mosque said they saw at midnight dozens Israeli occupation soldiers around the mosque, Naasan said, confirming that the incident took place under the protection of Israeli occupation forces.

Alei Ayin was dismantled by the Israeli police by force because it was erected illegally. The attack has been confirmed as a ”price tag” attack, where Israeli settlers retaliate against Palestinians when Israel dismantles settlement outposts.

The Gaza religious affairs ministry has condemned the crime, considering it a ”flagrant violation against the sanctity of houses of worship provided by international laws, conventions, and norms”.

Since the incident, more and more Palestinians have criticized the Palestinian Authority which rules the West Bank, accusing security services of not fulfilling the ”duty of protecting the mosques”.

One Palestinian man Mohammed Abdurrahman condemned the West Bank security services for the inability to protect the mosques at a time when the services have effectively persecuted Palestinian resistance fighters in the West Bank.
