Locals say settlers torched cars overnight

Qalqiliya – Ma'an – Israeli settlers torched cars and sprayed graffiti on homes in the occupied West Bank overnight, locals said Friday.

Residents of Jinsafut, a village east of Qalqiliya, said the incident began at about 2am, when locals awoke to shouting.

The alleged assailants were identified by locals as residents of the illegal settlement of Qedumim east of Qalqiliya.

The settlers reportedly entered Jinsafut late Thursday and wrote slogans on a residential wall. Hebrew-language graffiti left on the structure read "this is what you deserve."

The next morning, settlers set fire to two cars owned by local residents Muhammad Bashir and Abdullah Einash.

An Israeli military spokesman said a complaint was filed with the Civil Administration.

According to the complaint, the words "price tag" were inscribed on the wall, the official said.

"The IDF takes the matter very seriously," the spokesman noted, adding that the case was turned over to Israeli police for further investigation.
