Three Israeli soldiers are under arrest in connection with the vandalism of military and Palestinian property in what is being called a price-tag attack.

The suspects, described by the media as conscripts including an infantryman and a resident of an illegal West Bank settler outpost, were taken into custody Tuesday.

The military said they were accused of involvement in so-called “price tag” incidents, referring to the strategy that extremist settlers 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.

There was no immediate word on whether the soldiers would be indicted or how they might plead.
