J'lem youths suspected of setting Palestinian taxi ablaze

Settlers set taxi cab on fire, spray 'price tag' graffiti on Palestinian family's property. Police: Graffiti referencing to arrest of 3 right-wing activists by undercover police

Unknown vandals set a Palestinian taxi on fire on Sunday night at the entrance to the village of Daharia in the south Mount Hebron area. Graffiti slogans reading "Price Tag Susya" were found on the fence of a Palestinian family's home.


Shai District Police have said that the family has filed a complaint and that the incident will be investigated.

Police estimate that the graffiti referencing to the settlement of Susya has to do with the recent arrest of three right-wing activists by undercover police who were posing as Palestinian shepherds. In the incident, the settlers attacked the undercover police officers.


In a separate incident, the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court extended the remand of two Jerusalem teens, aged 15 and 16, by four days, on suspicion they punctured the tires of several Palestinian cars.


Police said that the acts were nationalistically motivated, and that the teens plastered stickers on the cars they damaged, explaining that their acts were in response to the eviction of settlements.


Attorney Adi Keidar, who represents the two teens said: "The two boys deny the allegations made against them and maintain their right to remain silent."
