The Higher Presidential Committee of Churches affairs in Palestine Condemned the Israeli settlers’ ‘terrorist attack’ against a Church in Tabgha in the Galilee.

The Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fish in Galilee, was set on fire at dawn on Thursday by Jewish extremists, which led to injuring two people including a monk, and resulting in considerable damage to valuable property.

The committee, in a statement, stressed that, “Israeli attacks on Christian and Muslim holy sites have continued and increased under the watch of the new, right-wing Israeli Government.”

“The culture of impunity that has been granted to Israel has allowed Israeli extremists to escalate their racist attacks against Palestinians and degrade our holy sites without any legal accountability,” said the statement.
