'Price tag Gaza' sprayed on vandalized car in Jerusalem

Nov. 25, 2012 1:20 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 26, 2012 5:09 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Vandals slashed the tires of several cars in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Shufat on Sunday morning, spraying one with the slogan 'Price tag - Gaza', Israeli police said.

Police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said the force had opened an investigation.

'Price tag' is the slogan used by right-wing extremists to describe vandalism and violence against Palestinians, usually in the West Bank, in revenge for policies they disagree with.

Israel's right-wing have criticized Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu for halting a military operation in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, ending eight-days of deadly bombardments.

During the conflict, the Jerusalem tram was planted with two fake bombs, Rosenfeld said. On Sunday morning, a Palestinian citizen of Israel was arrested in connected with these incidents, and another Palestinian was detained on suspicion of throwing a Molotov cocktail at the tram last week.
