Vandals torched a car belonging to a senior Palestinian Authority intelligence services official, Dr. Mohammad Ghannam, early Monday while it was parked outside his home in the Deir Dabwan village near Ramallah, Palestinian Ma'an news agency reported.

Ghannam - who was not injured in the attack - blamed the arson on Israeli settlers likening it to previous so-called "price tag" attacks on property belonging to Palestinians in the West Bank.

The report noted that Ghannam is Ramallah Governor Leila Ghannam's brother.
