Cars Torched in Suspected West Bank ‘Price Tag’ Attack

Two cars were torched and a building was vandalized in a Palestinian West Bank village near Ramallah.

The graffiti on the building read “Death to Arabs” in Hebrew. Residents of the village, al-Mughayir, said Thursday that the incident was a “price tag” attack committed by Israeli settlers, according to the Times of Israel.

Perpetrated by right-wing Israeli extremists in response to perceived anti-settlement policies, price tag attacks have occurred in Arab villages and neighborhoods throughout the West Bank and Israel. Israeli officials have vowed to fight the attacks.

Israeli police will enter al-Mughayir to investigate the incident.
