A "price tag" attack took place overnight in Yokne'am, Israel Police stated on Wednesday morning.

The attack was on the building of a dentist's office that belongs to a resident of the Golan Heights. The words "death to Arabs" was written in marker on the windows of the building. Other scribbles included "Regards to Fureidis, price tag."

Afula Police are investigating the incident and no suspects have been arrested.

Fureidis, near Zichron Ya’acov, has previously been the site of similar attacks. Last week residents staged a general strike after unidentified persons sprayed graffiti on a mosque and slashed dozens of tires.


Army Radio on Wednesday morning reported that due to the recent uptick in "price tag" attacks, officials are set to hold an emergency meeting today to discuss the issue.


On Sunday morning Afula Police stated a Kafr Kana resident reported that vandals punctured the tires of his car and spray-painted a Star of David on its door while the vehicle was parked in Yokne’am in the lower Galilee.



In a separate Sunday “price tag” attack in Kiryat Ye’arim, located outside of Jerusalem next to the Arab community of Abu Ghosh, vandals defaced a construction site shortly after a guard left the property for two hours during the early hours of the morning.
