So-called "price tag" attacks and the isolated radical settlers perpetrating them harm the state, the army and Israel's relations with its neighbors and the Palestinians, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said during a tour of the West Bank Tuesday morning.

Barak was clear, however, that those carrying out attacks against Palestinians and the IDF "are isolated radicals." Most settlers in the West Bank are normal citizens, he said, adding that settlers "are entitled to the protection of the state."

"These isolated radicals are harming Israeli citizens, diverting the IDF from its duties and its principles, and are also harming the delicate fabric of our relations with the Palestinians and our neighbors in general," the defense minister added.
