Vandals scrawled graffiti on Thursday on a mosque in Einabus, a Palestinian village in the West Bank, according to police. Along with the mosque, graffiti was found on the wall of a clinic and on private homes, according to a researcher working for the Human Rights organization Yesh Din.

Four vehicles had tires punctured, and one had a Star of David painted on it.

These types of attacks are often known as “price tag” attacks, whereby right-wing activists deface Palestinian property hoping to exact a price from local Palestinians for violence against settlers. In this case, one of the graffiti markings included the words “price tag.”

“In recent months, we have been witness to the violent attacks by unidentified individuals against Palestinian villages,” the Yesh Din researcher said. “The acts of vengeance are aimed at marking and harming the general Palestinian population by threatening Palestinian villages in the West Bank. [The attacks] don’t receive a significant response from law enforcement agencies, a reality which makes attacks like these against Palestinians a routine.”
