Suspected price tag attacks were discovered outside of Jerusalem and in the West Bank.

An Arab-owned construction site in the community of Kiryat Ye’arim, also known as Telz-Stone, located west of Jerusalem, was spray-painted late Saturday night with anti-Arab graffiti, including “price tag” and “Kahane was right.”

Also on Saturday, a Star of David was spray painted on the car of an Arab resident of Acre, and its tires were slashed.

Earlier on Saturday, more than 30 olive trees were discovered chopped down in the West Bank village of Nahalin and the words “Arab thieves” and “price tag” were found spray painted on rocks nearby, according to Ynet.

Price tag refers to the strategy adopted by extremist settlers and their supporters generally to exact retribution for settlement freezes and demolitions or Palestinian attacks on Jews.
