Settlers vandalize Nablus village in 'price tag' attack

NABLUS (Ma'an) --Israeli settlers on Friday destroyed a Palestinian car and vandalized a house in Jalud village south of Nablus, a local official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian Authority official who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that settlers from nearby Ahiya settlement torched a Subaru car belonging to Fathi Yousef Hajj which was parked near his house.

Daghlas added that they sprayed graffiti that said "price tag" on the walls of the house, which is located in an isolated area outside the village.

In October, an elementary school and a mosque in Jalud were also vandalized in price tag attacks.

"Price tag" is the term given by Israeli settler extremists to refer to attacks randomly targeting Palestinian civilians. The attacks are often committed in retribution for any perceived slight against the settlement enterprise, including decisions made by the Israeli government or other political actors.

Price tag attacks often target individual Palestinians' property as well as Christian and Muslim religious sites, and hundreds occur every year.

More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

very likely it was an inside job. or the 'occupation' is causing a global warming in the west bank which in turn heats up cars to the point they burn

Oh southparkbear, I worry about you. I really do. I think you, like Brian Cohen, have a kangaroo loose in your top paddock. Better get it out before it causes complete havoc. (BTW haven't heard from Brian of late - wonder if the kangaroo has completely destroyed HIS top paddock?)

Radicle Rabbi inspired hate. Nothing more. War crime tribunals await.

Wouldn't it be more appropriate to use the term 'alleged'. It's hard to believe that an attack like this could take place without someone getting a photo or even video of the attack taking place. The article neglects to mention when police believe that this attack took place.
