The assailants, who were carrying backpacks, then split up. One of them is seen heading to a rear wall, but the footage does not reveal what he did there. However, in the morning residents found the words "Solidarity with Esh Kodesh" spray-painted on the wall.


"Price tag" refers to the strategy that Jewish extremists have adopted to exact a price in attacks on Palestinians in retribution for settlement freezes and demolitions, or for Palestinian attacks on Jews.
