An approximately 20-year-old man was arrested on Monday for allegedly carrying out a number of "price tag" attacks in Jerusalem's Giv'at Shaul neighborhood in recent months. The term "price tag" refers to attacks carried out by right-wing extremists in protest of the government's razing of illegal West Bank outposts.
