Hamas censures ‘racist’ Israeli attack on Christian monastery

israil attackThe Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has condemned as a “racist crime” an attack by extremist Israeli settlers on a Christian monastery near al-Quds (Jerusalem).

The condemnation came after the Israeli settlers burned the doors of Trappist Monastery in Latrun, Ayalon Valley, on Tuesday and wrote anti-Christian slogans on its walls.

In a Tuesday statement, Hamas called on regional and international communities to take action against such crimes in the occupied lands.

“The organized crimes committed by this regime against the holy Islamic and Christian monuments show the real face of the racist Zionists,” the statement said.

On June 19, suspected extremist Israeli settlers torched a mosque and sprayed graffiti on its walls in the occupied West Bank.

The assailants wrote on the walls in Hebrew, “The war has begun” and “Pay the price,” according to a resident.

On June 11, Israeli settlers damaged several Palestinian cars in East al-Quds.

In recent years, extremist Israeli settlers in the occupied West Bank have often assaulted Palestinians and vandalized their property under the so-called “price tag” policy. However, the Tel Aviv regime rarely detains the assailants.

The extremists say the price tag attacks are carried out against any Israeli policy to ‘reduce the presence of settlers and settlements on occupied Palestinian land in the West Bank and East al-Quds.’

More than half a million Israelis live in over 120 illegal settlements built since the 1967 Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East al-Quds.
