In another apparent act of settler vandalism, two cars were found torched in the Palestinian village of Jen Safout, near Kedumim, on Friday morning.

In addition, the words “Price-tag” were spray-painted on a house in the village.

Villager Abdullah Anash, 34, said three settlers entered the village and burned his car and that of a neighbor.

The IDF condemned the incident Friday and said police would investigate.

"Price-tag" is a term used by settlers either to retaliate against government decisions which curb settlement activity or in response to Palestinian attacks.

It comes some 48 hours after a mosque was vandalized in Hawara, south of Nablus.

Senior officers have told The Jerusalem Post that the IDF Central Command has prepared a special crash course for soldiers in the Judea and Samaria Division amid concern about a possible escalation in settler violence should the government extend the moratorium on new settlement construction in the West Bank beyond the end of September.
