Report: Palestinian cars torched in northern Israel

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Ultra-Orthodox Jewish arsonists are suspected of torching three private cars belonging to Palestinian students who hold Israeli IDs in the northern Israeli city of Safad seemingly part of the retaliation wave to the Itamar killing last weekend, according to the Israeli daily newspaper Maariv.

Ma’ariv reported Wednesday morning that the university’s administration had warned Palestinian students of retaliatory attacks after five Israelis from Itamar settlement near Nablus were stabbed to death Friday night.

Despite that, added Maariv, ultra-Orthodox Jews managed to set ablaze three cars parked in the old city of Safad. They wrote on the park’s walls “death to Arabs.”

Haaretz: Unknown arsonists set the cars of two Arab students on fire in Safad on Wednesday morning, after a college event meant to promote dialogue between Jews and Arabs led to heated arguments between the two groups of students.

In addition to the arson, discriminatory slogans were spray-painted on the walls of the event's sponsor, Safad Academic College. "Arabs get out" and "Death to Arabs" was sprayed across the college's walls.
