Price Tag: Mosque vandalized, cars torched

Anonymous vandals spray paint West Bank village mosque overnight in response to Migron outpost razing. Two cars set on fire in nearby village

The "price tag" activity that targeted an IDF base in the West Bank earlier this week continued Thursday as Palestinian sources reported anonymous vandals spray painting a mosque in the West Bank village of Yitma overnight.


The Yitma council head told Ynet that anonymous vandals spray painted the local mosque located south of Nablus in response to the recent Migron outpost razing. The slogans read: "PT (Price Tag) Migron."

According to Yitma council head, two cars were set on fire as well in a nearby Arab village.


The Civil Administration said a complaint in the matter has yet to be filed.


Forming special task force to investigate

Anonymous assailants broke into a military base in the Binyamin region on Tuesday night, destroying 13 army jeeps and spray painting them with the words "Ramat Migron" and "Binyamin Brigade Commander – bad for the Jews".


The incident, as well as other "price tag" incidents against Palestinian targets in the West Bank, prompted Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino to form a special task force comprised of Lahav 443 and Judea and Samaria Subdistrict Police detectives, dedicated to investigating and preventing "price tag" activities.


A military official estimated that it would have been nearly impossible to penetrate the base without being exposed and believes that soldiers cooperated and even took part in the price tag acts.


The Central Command said it viewed the incident with the utmost severity, adding that it was certain the police would carry out an efficient and speedy inquiry and would capture those responsible.
