Tag Meir, Israeli organisation, revealed on Monday that extremist Jewish settlers have set fire on 46 mosques and 12 churches in the occupied West Bank and Israel over the past decade.
According to the organisation, which was established 15 years ago to counter settlers’ hate crimes and racism in Israel and the West Bank, the perpetrators of these crimes generally went unpunished.
It pointed out that most of these arson attacks were committed by an extremist settler group called Price Tag.
Whenever they carry out an attack, the Price Tag settlers spray-paint graffiti such as “Death to Arabs.. We will kill Arabs.. Arabs are our enemies.. We will force you out.”
Tag Meir said that the last of these attacks was the on a mosque in the Beir Safafa neighbourhood of occupied Jerusalem.
The fire started by the illegal settlers caused severe damage to the building.
