Palestinian cars torched in price tag attack
Palestinian cars were torched and vandalized in a price tag attack near Ramallah in the West Bank.
Israeli troops reportedly discovered one car burnt and two others spray-painted with slogans that read “Price Tag,” “Migron” and “Revenge to Arabs” in the early Wednesday morning attack.
The troops entered the Palestinian village after reports of Israeli civilians in the area.
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. The Migron outpost had been scheduled to be evacuated on Tuesday but was not.
On Tuesday, two torched cars were discovered in a Palestinian village near Hebron.
Meanwhile, Palestinians threw six firebombs at Israeli army patrols in eastern Jerusalem early Wednesday morning. One man was arrested in connection with the attack.
