The Maan News Agency reported that the settler broke into Al Nourein mosque after breaking it windows, and burnt tires inside the mosque. The fire spread in the mosque consuming most of its property.
Ghassan Douglas, in charge of the settlements file at the Palestinian Authority in the northern part of the West Bank, stated that this is not the first attack against mosques in the West Bank, and called on the Quartet Committee (The United States, The European Union, the United Nations and Russia) to intervene and stop the escalating attacks.
In related news, dozens of settlers hurled stones at Palestinian vehicles driving near the Yitzhar settlement, on the Nablus- Huwwara road; damage to several vehicles and a local bus was reported.
The settlers are carrying ongoing attacks against the Palestinians under the so-called “Price Tag”, as they blame the Palestinians for any Israeli evacuation of illegal settlement outposts.
On Monday at dawn, Israeli soldiers demolished three structures at the Migron illegal outpost, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah.
Earlier in June this year, settlers of the Alei Ayin illegal outpost torched a mosque in Al-Mughayyir village, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, after burning tires and throwing them in the mosque causing serious damages.
Last year, the settlers burnt several copies of the Quran while desecrating two mosques near Bethlehem and Nablus.

The soldiers, heavily deployed in the area, declared the village a “closed military zone”, and are preventing anybody from entering or leaving it.
Recently, the Israeli High Court authorized the army to resume the construction of the Wall on village lands in Al Walaja under the pretext that “the damage causing by the construction is relatively acceptable comparing to its security benefits”, according to the court.
Adel Al Atrash, deputy head of the Al Walaja Village Council, stated that the army uprooted, so far, more than 50 trees in the area.
Meanwhile the European Union stated that it is concerned about the serious humanitarian implications the Wall is having on the residents of Al Walaja.
On Monday at noon, settlers of the Beitar Illit illegal settlement, south west of Bethlehem, flooded with sewage water Palestinian olive orchards that belong to residents of Nahhalin village, near Bethlehem.
Osama Shakarna, head of the Nahhalin Village Council, stated that the settlers flooded more than 40 Dunams planted with more than 2500 Olive.
The sewage water reached Ein Fares natural spring used by the shepherd as the source of water for their herds.
