Bulk31NABLUS (PNIC):-Israeli settlers at dawn Friday torched a mosque in Aqraba town south of Nablus city and spray-painted racist slogans on its walls.

The PNIC reporter said that the settlers poured flammable liquid at the entrance to Sheikh Sa'ada mosque and set it on fire causing some partial damages.

Aqraba mayor Ghaleb Mayadmeh told the PNIC reporter that worshipers were shocked seeing the damages the fire caused when they headed to the mosque for dawn prayer.

Red Crescent paramedic Yousuf Deiriya said that a surveillance camera had spotted a masked settler torching the mosque's entrance and another spray-painting Hebrew graffiti that has the name of "Price Tag" gang.

In a related context, a group of Israeli settlers at dawn vandalized property of Palestinian farmers and uprooted a number of olive trees in Rujeib town east of Nablus.

Head of Rujeib village council and owner of the land that was attacked Walid Dweikat said that the settlers broke eight olive trees, blocked a water well with garbage and destroyed some stone walls in the area.

Dweikat pointed out that the targeted land is located between Beit Furik town and Itamar settlement built by force on privately-owned Palestinian lands.
