Al Qassam website- Israeli settlers have once against attacked a mosque in the western part of al-Quds (Jerusalem) to terrorize the Palestinian community, residents say.

The settlers moved to set the mosque ablaze on Wednesday and scrawled anti-Arab graffiti on the walls of the building, AFP reported.

The attackers also set fire to a building nearby, the report said.

"A good Arab is a dead Arab" and "price tag" were spray-painted by the settlers on the exterior walls of the mosque.

Israeli settlers are the main suspects behind "price tag" operations on mosques in the Palestinian territories.

Under the so-called "price tag" policy, Israeli settlers regularly engage in attacks against Palestinians and their properties, in supposed reaction to Tel Aviv's operations against illegal settlements.

Muslim nations have frequently blamed such acts on the Israeli regime, calling them a sacrilege of Islamic sanctities. The Israeli settlers have been heavily armed by Tel Aviv, and enjoy near immunity.

Violence by extremist settlers against the native Palestinian population is routine.
