At least 45 olive trees belonging to Palestinians were uprooted in an
apparent "price-tag" attack in the West Bank near Hebron on Thursday.

On a boulder nearby the words "Price-Tag Infiltration" were sprayed along with a Jewish star.
Israeli media speculated that the vandalism was likely in response to a fatal car accident near Kiryat Arba
that may have occurred as a result of Palestinian stone throwing.
The trees that were uprooted were on Palestinian property near the site of the accident.
Police have arrested two suspects
in the last few weeks for previous attacks, including one at an IDF base
and for damaging Palestinian vehicles. Both suspects have denied involvement.
Various such incidents of vandalism occurred in succession following the
IDF's razing of three homes deemed illegal by the High Courts in the
West Bank outpost of Migron
at the start of September.
