Extremist Settlers Torch Palestinian Taxi

West Bank Attack Latest in String of 'Price Tag' Incidents

A Palestinian taxi was set on fire in a West Bank village near Hebron.

The cab reportedly was set on fire early Monday morning. The words “Price tag Sussiya ” were spray painted on a nearby wall.

“Price tag” refers to the strategy that extremists have adopted to exact a price in attacks on Palestinians and Arabs in retribution for settlement freezes and demolitions, or for Palestinian attacks on Jews.

Three right-wing activists recently were arrested in Sussiya for throwing stones at Palestinian vehicles.

The taxi was destroyed in the fire.
