The Central Mosque in Oxford, UK, was suspected of being attacked after two gasoline cans allegedly bearing the words “Israel Defense Forces (IDF)” were thrown at buildings, the Council of Mosques said in a press release.

According to a press release posted on Sunday, an individual on a bicycle approached the outer gate of the mosque and threw two red gasoline cans with the letters “IDF” written on them in the direction of the mosque.


“We believe this attack was due to us showing our unwavering support for the innocent people of Palestine by displaying Palestinian flags around our mosque,” it said.

“This attempt to scare us will not work. We will continue to exercise our democratic rights and show solidarity with the innocent Palestinians being massacred indiscriminately and illegally,” it added.

The Council of Mosques also specifically warned women to be careful when participating in morning, evening and night prayers.

‘Shocked and saddened’

The council called on domestic politicians to condemn Israel’s war on Palestine and its blocking of water, food and aid supplies to Gaza.

They also called on all mosques to arrange security and warn their worshippers.

In a joint statement, Oxford East MP Anneliese Dodds and Oxford City Council leader Susan Brown said they were “shocked and saddened” by the incident.

“We stand with the Muslim community in Oxford in condemning this cowardly attack and urge people to be vigilant,” they said.
