Illegal Israeli settlers vandalise mosques in West Bank

Two mosques in a West Bank village were defaced with racist graffiti on April 7 marking the latest hate crime by suspected illegal Israeli settlers.

At one site in Tuqua, east Bethlehem, the attackers scrawled: ‘Adele Biton’s revenge’ – an Israeli toddler injured during a stone-throwing incident in March – and ‘Price tag for throwing stones,’ and drew two Stars of David around the front entrance with the words: ‘Regards from Adele’.

Tuqua Councillor, Adel al-Shaer, said: “Settlers came in the middle of the night and wrote threats in Hebrew on the walls of two mosques and slashed the tires of a car.”

Similar slogans were tagged on another mosque in the village.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri confirmed details of the attack, adding that two cars had their tires slashed.

The Israel military refused to comment on allegations by the residents that Israeli soldiers had guarded the settlers who participated in the vandalism.

Villagers threw stones at police and troops sent to the village to investigate the crimes, damaging some of their vehicles, she added.

Such incidents are known as ‘price tag’ attacks, a euphemism for hate crimes against Palestinians by Israeli settlers.
