The Grand mufti of Jerusalem Sheikh Muhammad Hussein on Tuesday condemned the vandalism and arson of a Ramallah mosque earlier in the day, saying, "the attack on this mosque is part of a systematic policy aiming to flame the conflict and show disrespect to the religious and human values of others," Ma'an reported.

Palestinians from the village of al-Muayar, near Ramallah reported that a carpet in the mosque was set fire in the early hour of the morning, in what appeared to be a "price tag" attack by settlers.
