Palestinian-owned vehicles were torched and vandalized in the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem, apparently in recognition of the end of the 30-day mourning period for slain Israeli settler Eviatar Borovsky.

“Regards from Eviatar” and “30 for Eviatar” were spray-painted on walls near about nine torched vehicles in Palestinian villages, and other cars had their tires slashed in attacks that occurred early Wednesday morning.

No one has been arrested for the vandalism, which occurred in two villages in the Jordan Valley, in a village near Ramallah and in Jerusalem.

Wednesday marks the shloshim that began at the burial of Borovsky, 31, a father of five from the Yitzhar settlement who was killed by a Palestinian assailant April 29 while waiting for a bus at the Tapuach Junction.

Other “price tag” attacks occurred in the days following Borovsky’s death.

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