Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch responded with outrage to the burning of a mosque Sunday in a suspected "Price Tag" attack, calling it a "criminal and despicable attack on a holy place."

"I've spoken with Police Insp.-Gen. [Yohanan Danino] about the incident and received updates about police responses to the incident and the police's determination to bring the perpetrators to justice," he added.

Last month, police announced the formation of a special task force to track down and arrest far-right extremists who were behind price tag incidents in the West Bank.

"These acts are so dangerous, and harmful on a national level. They can result in an escalation, and this is the last thing the country needs," Danino said in September.
