Mosques in the West Bank were vandalized and Quran copies were destroyed. Israeli forces set fire to Palestinian homes, vehicles, and farmlands.
The West Bank was shocked to witness masked Israeli occupiers tearing up copies of the Quran in the street. Earlier this week, an incident occurred that has been widely condemned by the international community.
In the West Bank, Israeli occupiers have previously targeted religious sites. Mosques and churches in the area have been vandalized several times in recent months by Israeli settlers.
Palestinian homes, vehicles, and farmlands have also been set ablaze by Israeli forces in the West Bank, in addition to the mosque incident. Further escalating tensions in the region, the attacks were carried out under the protection of occupying forces.
Against Israeli aggression in the West Bank, the Palestinian Authority has strongly condemned the attacks. There has also been concern expressed by the United Nations over the escalating violence in the region.
There has been outrage among Muslims around the world over the incident, with many calling for justice and an end to the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories. As a result of this incident, the long-running conflict needs a peaceful resolution.
Consequently, the attack on the mosque and the destruction of copies of the Qur’an constitute blatant violations of human rights. In the West Bank, the international community should take a stronger stance against Israeli aggression and work toward a peaceful resolution.
