Ancient Mosque Vandalized by Rightist Israelis in Nazareth Area
On Sunday, vandals attacked an ancient mosque in Ma'alul village near Nazareth, inside Israel. They removed the stones and spray-painted slogans of the Israeli settler movement on the walls.
According to the al-Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage, the stones were removed and stolen from the mosque's southern wall. Members of the Foundation, who visited the mosque, told the Ma'alul Heritage Association chief, Ali as-Salih, that they were willing to pay for renovations to repair the damage.
