Rabbis from Gush Etzion on Tuesday visited the mosque in the West Bank village of Beit Fajar which was the victim of an apparent "price tag" attack on Monday, Israel Radio reported.

Rosh Etzion Yeshiva head Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein and Efrat chief Rabbi Shlomo Riskin were among those who visited the mosque, condemning the actions which included arson, Koran burning and graffiti in Hebrew with the words "price tag" and "revenge" written over a stone doorway.

The rabbis brought new copies of the Koran to the mosque to replace those that had been burned.
