PA official: Settlers torch Nablus mosque

Nov. 19, 2012 8:02 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 19, 2012 10:27 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Settlers torched a Nablus mosque overnight Sunday, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settler activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that a group of settlers from Yizhar entered the village of Urif and set fire to the entrance of a mosque.

Villagers managed to stop the fire from spreading and chased the settlers out of the village, Daghlas added.

"The settlers tried to break into the mosque, but it was locked," Orif resident Issam al-Safadi told Reuters.

"So they settled with burning the old carpet and the door."
