Kadima MK Nahman Shai on Monday criticized security forces for failing to prevent "price tag" attacks, allegedly carried out by settlers in the West Bank following demolitions in the Migron outpost.

"The security forces fail time after time to enforce law and order in Judea and Samaria," Shai said in statement referencing an attack of a mosque near Nablus which occurred early Monday morning.

"Despite fancy declarations by the prime minister and the defense minister, nothing is actually done," Shai stated. "Explosive materials are in place, waiting for a match to ignite them," he added.

"At this juncture, these events only serve to increase the hate and the criticism of Israel and its isolation internationally," the Kadima MK concluded.
