Israeli settlers torch mosque in Ramallah-area village


A group of Israeli settlers set fire inside a mosque in the Palestinian village of al-Mughayyir near Ramallah early Wednesday, locals told Ma'an.

Worshipers said that when they went to the mosque to perform dawn prayer around 4:30 a.m., they saw smoke smoke and flames coming from the first floor of the two-story building.

The first floor was seriously damaged, and the second floor was lightly damaged, they said.

They said the settlers left behind racist slogans in Hebrew on the outer walls of the mosque.

The same mosque has been targeted by Israeli settlers before, locals told Ma'an.

"Every time the mosque is torched, the (Israeli) occupation police conduct an investigation just for show, and never arrest a single settler," one resident said. more
