GAZA, (PIC)– A large number of Jewish settlers at dawn Wednesday set fire to a mosque in the occupied Jerusalem as part of the “price tag” campaign by the extremist settlers against Palestinians.

Palestinian and Israeli sources said that a group of settlers broke into “Ukasha” mosque in the west Jerusalem and set fire to it causing some damage.

The assailants daubed the walls of the mosque with anti-Arab, anti-Muslim graffiti and insults to Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him). They also wrote in Hebrew “price tag”. The attack is similar to a series of attacks by Jewish settlers against Palestinian people, property and holy places in the West Bank and 1948-occupied areas. Each time further attacks are threatened.

Spokesman for the fire brigades Assaf Abras said that initial investingation into the fire indicate arson and said that the Jerusalem municipality ordered the closure of the mosque after the fire was put out.
