JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Suspected Jewish extremists punctured the tires of dozens of Palestinian cars in annexed East Jerusalem on Monday in the latest so-called "price tag" hate crime, police and an AFP correspondent said.

The attack took place in Beit Hanina with Hebrew graffiti on a nearby bus reading "Gentiles in the country are enemies".

Police said the tires of 34 cars were punctured, but an AFP correspondent at the scene placed the number at 45, noting all four wheels of each car were slashed.

Residents told Ma'an that the damage was discovered at 5 a.m. as locals left their homes to go to work.

"Five settlers stormed the al-Samah square at around 2:30 a.m. coming from the direction of Pisgat Zeev settlement which is built on lands of Beit Hanina. Two of them positioned themselves at the main entrance to watch as the rest assaulted properties in the neighborhood," local resident Muhammad Abu Sneina told Ma'an.

In June, 21 cars were vandalized in a similar attack in Beit Hanina not far from Monday's attack.

Last month, the tires of 31 cars were slashed in a Palestinian neighborhood in the southern sector of East Jerusalem.

The only question I have to Mr. Abu Sneina , if he knew of the 5 attackers at 2:30 AM , why didn't he wake up the people by yelling or calling the police or doing something? This part of the story does not make sense to me. If a normal person sees people vandalizing , he would do something....Natural reaction.

All peoples with kind heats must spread the word of a Real Just Peace to people in their communities( ex. Churches and synagogues). we all need peace and goodwill towards one another...let your children and their childrens children know peace ...

# 1 - yeah, JoelUSA - that "natural reaction" may be the situation in the US, and in Australia. But for an Arab in East Jerusalem? Don't think so . . .

Ref#4 , I was not attacking the character of the alleged witness , I was criticizing the shoddy job of the reporter that did not ask the pertinent questions to present a clearer image of the incident. I think Arab people of East Jerusalem are normal people , but you clearly have a prejudice against them and think that they are less of normal people, I do not.
