#AceWorldNews – ISRAEL – April 03 – (Arutz Sheva – INN) – Arab village in the Galilee has been targeted in a suspected “price-tag” incident, according to police.
Around 40 cars had their tires slashed in the predominantly Christian village of Jish, in northern Israel, which lies some 25 kilometres (15 miles) north of the Sea of Galilee, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said Thursday morning.
“This morning in Jish, it was discovered that almost 40 vehicles had had their tyres slashed,” she told AFP, saying police had opened an investigation.
Written in Hebrew on a nearby wall were the words: “Only Gentiles (non-Jews) should be removed from our land,” she said, in an apparent reference to ongoing efforts to ethnically-cleanse Jews from parts of Judea and Samaria.
“Price tag” is a euphemism for politically-motivated vandalism and criminal damage usually attributed to Jewish extremists, carried out either in revenge for Arab terrorist attacks, or in protest of Israeli government policies such as the destruction of Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria.
