The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is condemning the vandalism of two West Bank mosques by Jewish extremists in what seems to be part of the series "price tag" attacks.

Reports state that the phrases "price tag," "stone terror," and "revenge for Adele Biton," were spray-painted onto mosques in the West Bank town of Tuqu'.

The reference to Adele Bittn refers to an infant who was injured last month by young Palestinian stone-throwers.

ADL's Israel office issued a statement stressing the "shock" that the assailants believed using Bitons name would provide "justification for their despicable actions."

The statement added that those responsible for the attack should be prosecuted and that law enforcement officials should do more to "crack down on Jewish extremists," and prevent further incidents.
