Police arrested three right wing activists, who were allegedly on their way to carry out a 'price tag' attack in Jerusalem.

The suspects, aged 16-18, were caught at daybreak, wearing hoodies and balaclavas and carrying paint and an instrument for puncturing car tires.

After their arraignment, the judge released two minors and ordered the 18-year-old remanded.

'Price tag' attacks are the name given to acts of vandalism and assault carried out by nationalistic extremists against Arab, leftist or military targets, supposedly to avenge actions carried out against the settlers movement or ideology.
