The Wafa News Agency quoted Palestinian minister of Awqaf and religious affairs, Hatem Al-Bakri, as saying this.
He added that these violations come in light of an occupation policy aimed at allowing settlers to work without any controls or restrictions, even with regard to religious sites and mosques.”
In 2021, the public relations and media department in the ministry of Awqaf documented attacks on more than 10 mosques in the West Bank, in addition to dozens as a result of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip.
Extremist Israeli settlers who live in heavily fortified enclaves in occupied areas illegally and are protected by the Zionist army storm Muslim religious sites regularly.
Israel captured the West Bank in the 1967 Middle East war and established dozens of illegal settlements where nearly 500,000 settlers live.
Palestinians want West Bank as part of their future state and see the illegal settlements as a major obstacle to resolving the conflict.
