Palestinians from a West Bank village near Nablus reported on Monday that dozens of olive trees were uprooted and anti-Arab graffiti was spraypainted on large stones nearby.

Samaria police and military authorities said they would investigate the matter.According to locals from the village of Kfar Yasuf, the uprooting of trees was the latest in a series of acts of vandalism known as “price tag,” in which far-rightists do damage to property in response to what they perceive as government policy that is not to their liking.
