Israeli settlers partially burn West Bank mosque

Illegal Israeli settlers burned the entrance of a West Bank mosque in the early hours of January 15.

The settlers infiltrated Deir Estia village and attempted to burn the entire Ali Bin Abi Taleb Mosque but were chased away by locals who extinguished the fire before it spread.
Mayor Ayoub Abu Hajleh said the settlers stormed the area at 3:30am and set parts of mosque ablaze.

“The town’s residents rushed to put out the flames before expanding to other areas,” he said.
The mayor added that the Jewish settlers had sprayed slurs like “Death to Arabs” and “Revenge is coming against Muslims,” in Hebrew on the mosque walls.

Israeli settlers are responsible for dozens of similar attacks against mosques, churches, Islamic and Christian holy sites and graveyards in occupied Palestine.

In many cases, they have written racist graffiti, not only against the Arabs and Palestinians but also, in several cases, against the Prophet Muhammad and Jesus Christ.

Last year, Israelis attacked, defaced and burned several Muslim and Christian holy sites and graveyards across occupied Palestine. They also cut, uprooted and burned hundreds of Palestinians trees, as well as flooded farmlands with sewage water in different parts of the occupied West Bank.

At least 145 Palestinians were injured in a total of 91 attacks by Jewish settlers from January to November of 2013, according to figures released by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

According to OCHA, the same period also saw 300 attacks targeting Palestinian-owned land and property.

Palestinian officials accuse Israeli army and police personnel of turning a blind eye to attacks by settlers.
