The phrases "price tag" and "Rabin is waiting for you" were spray-painted overnight Tuesday near the residence of Peace Now official Hagit Ofran in Jerusalem.


Tuesday evening marks the Jewish anniversary of prime minister Yitzhak Rabin's assassination.

The unknown vandals also wrote "Hagit Ofran – zal (of blessed memory)" and "Givat Assaf" – an illegal outpost in the West Bank which is slated for evacuation by the State. The Right is protesting against the planned razing of a number of illegal outposts. The phrase "regards from Oz Zion" was spray-painted in the building's stairwell. Oz Zion is a West Bank outpost which was cleared on Monday. Twelve people were arrested during its evacuation.

A vehicle bearing a "Peace Now" bumper sticker was vandalized nearby. The car does not belong to Ofran, who serves as the director of Peace Now's Settlement Watch project.


Earlier this week the phrase "price tag" was spray-painted on the walls of Peace Now's Jerusalem office. According to Peace Now, the suspected perpetrator apparently buzzed on the office's intercom and said that a bomb had been hidden in the building, but no bomb was found.


About two months ago vandals wrote "the end is near" on the entrance to Ofran's building. She told Ynet at the time. "It is not pleasant but I am not the only one. Senior IDF officers and other activists have also (been targeted). We know who we are dealing with."


No suspects have been arrested as of yet.
