Settlers set fire to a mosque in the village of Qasra after defiling it with insulting and racist slogans against Islam.
According to eyewitnesses, the settlers arrived between 1:00-3:00 am and started drawing anti-Islamic slogans on the mosque walls. They then removed the door and set the mosque on fire.
It is believed, the settlers were from the Majdoleem settlement, south of Nablus.
Al-Sheikh Yousef Adeis, the head of the Supreme Council for the Islamic courts, asked the Islamic countries to take action and help the Palestinian people in protecting the mosques in Palestine, especially Al-Aqsa.
According to the Minister of Awqaf and Religious Affairs, Dr. Mahmmoud al Habbash, this wasn’t the first mosque to be burned, and he stated that “the habitual burning of mosques is complicating the situation and ensures that peace is impossible.”
According to a spokesman from the Palestinian political party Fatah, “burning mosques makes us more determined to go to the United Nations to fight for our rights. He also added: “we want to kick out those killing terrorists and ‘mosque burners.”
