Police detained a suspect on Tuesday in connection with the damaging of Palestinian vehicles, which took place as part of a series of 'price tag' attacks that occurred in the West Bank in recent weeks.

The suspect, 19, is a resident of Kiryat Arba.

He was released after being questioned.

Sources close to the suspect said he had lost a brother to a terrorist attack in the past and added that security forces have warned him that he would be arrested during a recent conversation.

Earlier on Tuesday a 25 year old suspect, taken into custody Monday, on suspicion of vandalizing and sabotaging IDF jeeps during a price tag attack this month was order to remain in custody for five days by the Petach Tikva magistrate court.

The suspect, named as Alex Ostrovsky, has denied any links to the incident.

Police have recently set up a special task force to stem far right attacks on Palestinians in the West Bank.
