Eleven cars in the southeast Jerusalem Arab neighborhood of Beit Safafa were vandalized early Wednesday morning in an apparent price-tag attack, police said.
According to Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, all the vehicles’ tires were slashed before dawn, with Hebrew anti-Arab graffiti spray-painted on the hood of one of the cars.
“An official complaint was made to police by local residents this morning, and at the moment police are looking for the suspects behind it and searching the area hoping to make arrests,” he said.
Rosenfeld added that an investigation into the vandalism has been launched.
The attack comes less than two months after the nation’s largest integrated educational institution, Jerusalem’s Max Rayne Hand in Hand School, was set on fire and anti-Arab graffiti was spray-painted on its walls.
