Jerusalem24 – Israeli settlers this morning set fire to parts of a mosque in the village of Zeita, South of Nablus.

The head of the Zeita Village Council, Zaid Ramadan, stated that settlers infiltrated the village center in the early morning hours and set fires at the entrance to the Ebad Al-Rahman Mosque.

The settlers used flammable petroleum products and old shoes placed near the mosque entrance to start the fire which burned part of the carpet.
