Unknown assailants set fire to two vehicles in a parking lot in Jerusalem's Sheikh Jarrah
neighborhood. Graffiti reading "price tag"
was found nearby. Police suspect the act was racially motivated.
One vehicle sustained heavy damage.
Adnan Abdul Latif said in response, "I've lived here all my life and this is the first time this happened. It's a very uncivilized way to express what these people want to say. I don't even understand what the revenge is for."
Similar acts were recorded in Jerusalem earlier this month. The tires of four vehicles in Sheikh Jarrah were slashed, and graffiti reading "Eviatar's revenge" was found nearby some two weeks ago. The graffiti refers to Eviatar Borovsky
who was murdered at the Tapuach Junction in late April.

Simultaneously, unknown vandals slashed the tires of three vehicles in the Shufat refugee camp.
In another recent case, unknown vandals sprayed anti-Christian hate slogans on Jerusalem's Dormition Abbey and a car parked nearby. The slogans read, "Christians are monkeys", "Christians are slaves" and "Havat Maon" referring to a settler outpost in the West Bank.
