The graffiti included the words "Regards from Ettinger." Similar slogans were found near the village of Dahriya in south Mount Hebron earlier this month. A Palestinian taxi was torched in the same incident.


The slogan likely refers to right-wing activist Meir Ettinger – one of five suspects who were charged planning and taking part in the raid on the Ephraim Territorial Brigade base. Ettinger was indicted for tracking the IDF's activity in the West Bank and collecting information of military value.

Police are looking into the possibility that the vandalism is related to the stabbing of a Jewish man in Ras al-Amud on Friday.


Last June, the tires of seven vehicles in Shufat were punctured. Jerusalem Police set up a special team to investigate the incident but no suspects have been arrested.
