An approximately 20-year-old man was arrested on Monday for allegedly carrying out a number of "price tag" attacks in Jerusalem's Giv'at Shaul neighborhood in recent months. The term "price tag" refers to attacks carried out by right-wing extremists in protest of the government's razing of illegal West Bank outposts.

Police suspect the man slashed the tires of four vehicles belonging to Arabs in east Jerusalem as well as spray-painting price tag slogans on several other vehicles.

Police said the suspect admitted to slashing the cars' tires, claiming he did so because they were parked in his parking spot.
