IDF Condemns Acts of Vandalism in Huwwara, 14 Apr 2010

The Bilal Ibn Rabah mosque in the village of Huwwara, south of Nablus, was vandalized by anonymous suspects last night. The Star of David symbol and the caption “Mohammad” in Hebrew were among the graffiti painted on the wall of the mosque. In addition, two vehicles were set on fire in the village.

The Commander of the IDF Judea and Samaria division, Brig. Gen. Nitzan Alon ordered an immediate investigation into the incident, condemned the acts and said that those responsible should be brought to justice.

The IDF conveyed a message to the Palestinians through the Civil Administration to reassure them that the IDF takes the matter of harming or vandalizing of holy sites very seriously.  It should be noted  that the Civil Administration erased  the graffiti this morning.
