One of three mosques in the village of Tuba-Zangariyye in the Upper Galilee was set on fire overnight on Sunday in a suspected “price tag” attack.

It is thought that the attackers arrived at the mosque at approximately 1.30 A.M. and set it alight.

The entire interior of the mosque went up in flames, causing heavy damage. Holy books inside the mosque were burned.

Graffiti with the words “price tag” was found on the wall of the mosque.

Northern District Police Commander Major-General Roni Atia who was on the scene described the incident as “very serious in the context of ‘price tag’ attacks.” Atia has set up a special team to investigate the incident and bring the perpetrators to justice.

Residents of the village described the attack as “very serious.”

“It is obvious that Jewish extremists did this, despite the internal divisions we have, no one here would dare harm the mosque.”
