Home Front Defense Minister Matan Vilna’i condemned on Thursday the torching of a mosque in the village of Tuba Zangaria overnight Sunday, during a visit to the Benduin village.

Vilna'i pledged government responsibility for the reconstruction of the mosque and assistance to the village.

"Whoever committed this criminal act is trying to incite the field," he said. "The police and security forces will do everything possible in order to catch and severely punish those responsible for the incident. We will not let any radical element incite the Galilee and damage our good relations with our neighbors."
