The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on Monday "strongly condemned" the defacement of two West Bank mosques on April 7, in what appeared to be another incident in a series of “price tag” attacks by Jewish extremists.

According to reports, the slogans "price tag" and "stone terror" were spray painted on the walls of two mosques in the Palestinian town of Tuqu’. The graffiti included the words "revenge for Adele Bitton," a reference to an infant who was wounded alongside her mother and two siblings in a stone-throwing incident near the settlement of Ariel last month.

The ADL stated it is "particularly shocking" that those responsible for this crime seem to believe that invoking the name of Adele Bitton "provided justification for their despicable actions."

The organization called for those responsible to be apprehended and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
