"Price tag" vandals graffitied private homes and damaged at least 10 vehicles over Wednesday night, according to B'Tselem.

They spray painted "Gentiles in the Land = Enemies" on one home and the Star of David on some cars. There have been a number of attacks in the month of June, where right-wing Israelis are alleged to have defaced and destroyed Palestinian property.

The term "price tag" comes from the idea that these right-wing Israelis hope to extract a price from their Palestinian neighbors.

Earlier in June, vandals scrawled graffiti on a mosque in Einabus 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.
