A taxi cab and a building were vandalized in the West Bank village of Al-Jeniya near Ramallah overnight Saturday.

Spray-painted on the taxi and the building was "Death to Arabs," "revenge" and "closed military zone," slogans previously used in so-called 'price tag' attacks carried out by right-wing extremists in protest of demolitions of illegal outposts. Other slogans included: "Mohammad is a pig," and the names of a number of settlement outposts.

The taxi's tires were also slashed in the incident.

A witness told B'Tselem workers that he heard tires being slashed around 2 a.m. Sunday morning. When he went outside to investigate, the man said, he saw four or five youngsters, one of whom was still spray-painting graffiti.

He claimed that once the youths realized they had been spotted, they ran towards the adjoining settlement and entered it through a gate in its security fence, according to a statement from B'Tselem.

Al-Jeniya is located a few hundred meters from the settlement of Talmon.

Villagers reported the incident to police, who B'Tselem said arrived an hour and a half later to collect evidence.
