Settlers attack Palestinian farmers in first week of olive harvest

Israeli settlers vandalized the mosque and torched cars in the 
occupied West Bank village of Burqa.

Electronic Intifada
On October 10th, Israeli settlers raided Burqa. In addition to vandalizing the village mosque, three cars were also set ablaze in front of their owners’ homes.
This attack and others appear to be in response to the recent killings of Israeli soldiers in the West Bank.
The group of settlers – calling themselves “The redemption of Zion” – spray-painted graffiti mosque wall. The message was ostensibly in revenge for the death of Tomar Hazan, an Israeli soldier killed in the West Bank city of Qalqiliya in late September of this year.
