Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar made harsh statements against violence targeting soldiers, Palestinians and leftist activists in what is referred to as the "price tag" phenomenon.


Speaking at a youth rally marking 16 years since the murder of former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, Sa'ar said: "The 'price tag' gangs which scheme against innocents, damage property, hurt IDF soldiers and members of the security forces, burn mosque and generally terrorize (the public) are a dangerous and cancerous tumor which must be removed."

He added that "price tag" vandals were "enemies of Judaism" and urged law enforcement authorities to curb the phenomenon.


On Wednesday morning, three Palestinian vehicles in the West Bank were found burnt. A nearby wall saw the words "regards from Bat-Ayin" and a Star of David spray-painted on it.


On Tuesday, 'price tag' slogans were spray-painted on the house of Hagit Ofran, a senior member at the Peace Now movement. Hate messages were also spray-painted on a car parked nearby which had Peace Now stickers on it.
