The ministry added that "the settler's breaking the lock of one of the doors of the church and a camera installed in the place is clear evidence of his intention and behind him to carry out the most heinous attacks and crimes against the church."

The Ministry affirmed that the settlers' continuous attacks against the Palestinian people, their land, holy sites, properties, homes and crops are carried out with the protection, support, support and financing of the occupation state and its various branches, which led to the spread of settler terrorist organizations and their wide spread in the mountains and hills of the occupied West Bank, and also led to the expansion of their attacks against Palestinian citizens and their sanctities .
