A 26-year-old man from the West Bank settlement of Eli was arrested on Monday on suspicion of being involved in a vandalism and sabotage attack on an IDF base earlier this month.

On September 7, anonymous vandals broke into the Hativat Binyamin army base in Beit El, tagging at least ten military vehicles with the Hebrew words "Price Tag" and "Greetings from Migron." The vandals also punctured tires, smashed car windows, and cut cables. The attack followed a spate of incidents targeting Palestinian mosques and vehicles.

During questioning, the suspect has so far denied any links to the incident, The Jerusalem Post has learned.

He is scheduled to be brought before a judge for a remand hearing in the near future.
