Jewish Settlers Burn + Damage a Mosque?

For us Westerners; it does appear much of the happenings in Palestine are indeed going unreported or under-reported when it comes to abuses of Palestinians and the second class status the Palestinians are suffering at the hands of the Israeli settlers.

This segment of news reporting is based on eye-witness accounts (according to Mike Hanna) of Israeli settlers ransacking a mosque in Beit Fajjar (West Bank); a portion of it was set alight and the walls of the mosque was subjected to graffiti. In fact this type of attack is not unprecedented, this type of vandalism and disrespect has happened in the past too.

The Israeli Defence Force did state they will investigate the incident. The report showed burnt copies of the Quran and scorch marks to the mosque floor as well as graffiti.

Beit Fajjar is close to Bethlehem as well as a large Jewish settlement. It seems as though a group of Jewish settlers from the nearby settlement are suspected of being the perpetrators of this crime.
