Settlers Vandalize West Bank Mosque

A mosque near Hebron was spray painted with graffiti referring to a West Bank outpost.

“Price Tag Migron” was painted on the wall of a mosque in Dura, a village located southwest of Hebron. Palestinian residents informed West Bank police on Tuesday evening.

Price tag refers to the strategy that extremists have adopted to exact a price in attacks on Palestinians and Arabs in retribution for settlement freezes and demolitions, or for Palestinian attacks on Jews. The illegal Migron outpost was evacuated of its 50 families earlier this month.

The Palestinian Authority Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud al-Habbash told the Palestinian Ma’an news agency that settlers also tried to burn the mosque and several cars around the mosque.

The incident comes on the heels of an attack last week in which the door of the Latrun Monastery was set on fire and the names of West Bank outposts were spray-painted on the walls, as was the epithet “Jesus is a monkey.”
