A Jewish minor from the West Bank was charged with a price tag attack in a Palestinian village.

According to an indictment filed Thursday, the charged minor and several others in February set fire to cars and a home in the Palestinian village of Nabi Elias and spray painted the words “Price Tag” on a wall near the attack.

“Price tag” refers 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.

During a car chase with police the alleged vandal threw items out of his car that linked him to the vandalism. He was forced to abandon his car and flee on foot. The minor indicted Thursday was traced through his car, according to the Jerusalem Post.

He was arrested a day after the attack.
