Unidentified vandals spray painted hate slogans on a building in the West Bank village of Awarta on Tuesday night, and attempted to torch two cars.

Palestinian eye-witnesses claim the assailants fled after drenching the vehicles in gasoline. Two bottles filled with fuel were later found in the area.

The Bethlehem-based Ma'an News Agency cited a Palestinian activist claiming that settlers from a nearby settlement raided the village and poured petrol over the cars. Sources have branded the incident as the latest in a string of "price tag" attacks.

Security forces have launched an investigation.
