Israeli extremist settlers on Monday morning burned copies of the Holy Quran and threw them in a garbage can in the old city of occupied Hebron.
Nidal Al-Jabari, director of the Palestinian Endowment Department in Hebron, reported that a group of Israeli settlers raided Qaitoun Mosque, burned copies of the Holy Quran, and threw them in the garbage can.
He added that the endowment is shocked by the crime of tearing up the Quran copies and burning them, stressing that this poses a brutal violation against Muslims.
“The Endowment will take the necessary measures to expose the occupation’s criminal practices, which reflect the moral and ethical degradation of the occupation and its settlers,” Al-Jabari said.
Al-Jabari pointed out that the Palestinian mosques and cemeteries have been under constant attacks by Israeli settlers in the old city of occupied Hebron.
Israeli occupation forces closed 9 Palestinian mosques in the old city of occupied Jerusalem, preventing Palestinians from reaching them.
Earlier in October, the Palestinian Endowment revealed that Israeli occupation forces have attacked 15 Palestinian mosques in the West Bank since the start of 2022.
