Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said that the apparent "price-tag" attack on a mosque in the Beduin village of Tuba Zanghariya in Israel is part of a larger operation to obliterate the "foundations of Islamic civilization on Palestinian land," Hamas-affiliate Al Resalah reported on Thursday.

Haniyeh, who made the comments from an International Book Fair in Gaza City, said that operations like the arson at the Tuba mosque followed the instruction of Zionist rabbis who call for the burning of mosques and the Koran, in attempts to silence the voice of Islam in the Palestinian territories occupied in 1948, according to the Al Resalah report.

The Hamas leader praised the strike announced today in cities and villages across the Galilee condemning the burning of the Al-Nour mosque in Tuba Zanghariya.
