Unknown vandals sprayed the words "Migron Price Tag" on a mosque in the village of Imrish near Hebron. IDF forces patrolling the area discovered the graffiti which was likely sprayed two days ago.


Last week, unknown assailants burned the door of the Latrun Monastery and sprayed hate messages on the scene including "Jesus is a monkey" and "Ramat Migron." Police and Shin Bet launched an investigation.

The incident sparked worldwide uproar and offended many Christians. Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman denounced the vandals as "lunatics."


Earlier this week, Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich announced the establishment of a new police unit to crackdown against Jewish terror in the backdrop of failures to address countless incidents of holy sites' desecration.


"We must institute a zero tolerance policy against terror, the desecration of religious institutions, attacks on symbols of governance and attacks commonly known as 'price tag,'" Aharonovitch said.
