A Palestinian commercial vehicle was set on fire overnight Thursday in the northern West Bank village of Ein Abus.

 

The vehicle was torched at around 3 am. The perpetrators spray-painted "Eye for an eye – we won’t forget" in Hebrew next to it.

 

Ein Abus resident Mahmoud Rian said he was certain Jewish settlers were behind the act. "This is not the first time this has happened. Settlers from Yitzhar come here whenever they are angry about something - regardless of whether we have anything to do with it – and cause damage," he said, adding that the vehicle was burned completely.

 

Judea and Samaria Police said, "Army and police forces arrived at the scene and have launched an investigation. No suspects have been apprehended as of yet."

 

Meanwhile, a small explosive device was discovered on a road leading to the Gilad Farm outpost at around 2 am. Border Guard sappers detonated the bomb. No injuries were reported.

 

On Wednesday Palestinians from Urif in the West Bank reported that a tractor belonging to the village was torched. Messages such as "price tag Bat Ayin" and "revenge against Arabs" were found sprayed-painted near the tractor.

 

Civil Administration inspectors recently handed out razing orders for several buildings in the settlement of Bat Ayin, a move which may have prompted settlers to perform "price tag" attacks in the Palestinian village, situated south of the settlement of Yitzhar. Police launched an investigation.
