Judea and Samaria Police on Thursday night arrested a man they suspect plotted a “Price Tag” attack against Palestinians, the district police stated Saturday night.

Police said that on Thursday night officers patrolling the “Beladim” outpost in the northern West Bank saw the man trying to stash a backpack and flee the scene. In the bag, police said they found black gloves, spray paint, ski masks, a flashlight and a hand gas pump. They arrested the man, a Jerusalem resident, and on Friday, the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court extended his remand by three days.

On Saturday evening, the man’s attorney Avihai Hajbi, said that police in court said they cannot link the items inside the bag to his client who he believes will be released by Monday.
