Israeli Troops Burn Qur’an: Report

Israeli soldiers have reportedly burnt the Muslim holy book of Qur’an during an overnight attack on a Palestinian family in the occupied West Bank.

Sahar Beida said on Monday that she and her daughter had been confined in different rooms by Israeli soldiers who were there to arrest her husband Ismail.

"When I came out I was shocked to find our Qur’ans were on the front step and had been burned," she told AFP.

"They took the Qur’ans from the house and burned them in the alley," the 40-year-old mother added.

Charred pages from the holy book were shown to an AFP photographer who visited the Palestinian family’s home.

The Israeli military has not commented on the report so far.

Earlier this month, vandals in southern West Bank spray-painted graffiti on a mosque and set it ablaze along with several Qur’ans and prayer rugs.

This is while in September, the plan by US pastor Terry Jones to burn a pile of Qur’ans sparked international outrage and was condemned across the Muslim world.
