Police suspect 'price tag' incidents near Jerusalem, Acre

Suspected far-right vandals have once again defaced Arab-owned property just outside of Jerusalem in what authorities on Sunday believe to be yet another “price tag” incident, Israel Radio reported.

In a construction site in Kiryat Ye’arim (also known as Telz-Stone), anti-Arab graffiti was found spray-painted on the walls, including “price tag” and “Kahane was right,” a reference to the slain rabbi Meir Kahane, a Jewish extremist who advocated the expulsion of Arabs from Israel.

A security guard tasked with watching over the site told police that he left his post for two hours. Upon returning, he discovered that the property had been vandalized.

Last night, an Arab resident of the mixed Jewish-Arab city of Acre discovered that one of the tires of his car was slashed while it was parked in a lot near Ein Hashofet in the north. Vandals also drew a Star of David with the words “price tag” on the tire.
