Settlers torch Palestinian vehicles after prisoner release

Dec. 31, 2013 9:22 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 7, 2014 12:58 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A group of extremist settlers torched three Palestinian vehicles in Ramallah near the Israeli settlement of Beit El early Tuesday, apparently in protest at Israel's release of 26 Palestinian prisoners.

Hatim Subuh, a local resident, told Ma'an that a group of settlers set fire to a BMW, Peugeot, and Reno parked in front of his neighbors' houses.

Subuh highlighted that it was the third time settlers torched vehicles and sprayed racist slogans in his neighborhood.

The vandals also spray-painted "blood will flow in Judea and Samaria" and "this is war" on the wall of a house nearby, just hours after Israel freed the inmates, Israeli police spokeswoman Luba Samri told AFP.

Another message read "Hello, John Kerry," addressing the US Secretary of State, who returns to the region this week to boost the faltering negotiations that he kick-started in late July.
