Settlers burn car, spray hate slogans in Ramallah village

Nov. 19, 2012 1:45 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 20, 2012 3:00 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers set fire to a Palestinian's car and spray-painted racist slogans in Ramallah village Sinjil early Monday, in the second settler attack overnight in the West Bank.

Locals told Ma'an a huge explosion woke them at 3 a.m. and they discovered the car had been torched. Residents tried to extinguish the blaze and found price tag slogans painted on the house where the car was parked.

Extremist settlers label acts of violence against Palestinians in the West Bank as a "price tag" campaign, exacting revenge for Israeli policies they disagree with.

In Nablus, villagers in Urif found their mosque had been set alight early Monday.

Palestinian official Ghassan Daghlas told Ma'an residents stopped the spread of the blaze and chased settlers out of the village.
