A vehicle was torched in the village of Beit Ummar near Hebron overnight. Graffiti reading "A good Arab is a dead Arab" and other hate messages were found nearby. IDF sources said they view such acts with severity. Police launched an investigation.


Some two weeks ago, two "price tag" acts were recorded in Jerusalem and near Ramallah. Hebrew hate slogans, including "Jesus is a son of a b****h" were spray-painted on a monastery in the capital's Valley of the Cross.

Burnt car


The tires of three vehicles parked nearby were punctured and one car was found with a graffiti reading "Happy Hanukkah, triumph for the Maccabees." Jerusalem police launched an investigation.


In a separate incident in a village near Ramallah, a car was torched and "price tag" graffiti was found nearby. Security forces are probing the matter.

Hate slogans


Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's bureau said in response he was disgusted by the acts.


Netanyahu said: "This type of behavior goes against the Jewish values that we instill in our children. Freedom of religion will be preserved in Israel and we will persecute the heinous criminals that committed these acts."
