Settlers burn car, spray paint hate slogans in Hebron

Dec. 3, 2012 11:56 A.M. (Updated: Dec. 5, 2012 10:48 A.M.)
HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli settlers set fire to a Palestinian car and sprayed hate slogans on homes in the southern West Bank city of Hebron on Monday morning.

The assailants tagged their slogans with "price tag" and "settlers of Suseya," an Israeli settlement in the south Hebron hills, witnesses said.

Mahmoud Abu Sundus' car was completely burnt out by the vandals in the Wadi al-Asja neighborhood, they said.

Separately, Israeli forces detained three settlers suspected of torching a car and spraying "price tag" graffiti in Dhahiriya village south of Hebron on Monday morning, Israeli media reported.

The settlers were carrying weapons, flamable substances and spray paint cans, Israeli news site Ynet reported.

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.

Over 500,000 Israeli settlers live in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem, in Jewish-only communities which Palestinians say threaten the viability of a promised Palestinian state.

Rights groups say settlers are rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities for attacks against Palestinians.
