Palestinian sources said that Israeli settlers set a mosque on fire south of Nablus in the West Bank early on Monday morning in an apparent price tag attack following the earlier demolition of three homes in the Migron outpost, the Maan news agency reported.

Maan quoted the sources as saying the settlers stormed the mosque in the village of Qasra, smashing glass and setting fire to a number of tires within the mosque.

Witnesses also reported that dozens of settlers threw stones at Palestinian vehicles near the village of Hawara in the West Bank, according to Maan.
