The attack on a mosque overnight Monday was an outrageous, despicable and intolerable act, Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Tuesday.

"Price tag" assailants burned a mosque in Jab'a village, near Ramallah, police said Tuesday.

The attackers also sprayed graffiti on the mosque, including the words "Ulpana war," indicating that this was a price tag attack- an act of violence by right-wing activists against Arabs aimed at deterring Israeli leadership from acting against the settlement enterprise.

"We must respond with severity to the perpetrators," he said, adding that Israel must not allow tolerance for these types of incidents.
