In another apparent act of settler vandalism, two cars were found torched in the Palestinian village of Jen Safout, near Kedumim, on Friday morning.In addition, the words “Price-tag” were spray-painted on a house in the village.Villager Abdullah Anash, 34, said three settlers entered the village and burned his car and that of a neighbor.The IDF condemned the incident Friday and said police would investigate. "Price-tag" is a term used by settlers either to retaliate againstgovernment decisions which curb settlement activity or in response toPalestinian attacks.It comes some 48 hours after a mosque was vandalized in Hawara, south of Nablus.Senior officers have told The Jerusalem Post that the IDF Central Command has prepared a special crash course forsoldiers in the Judea and Samaria Division amid concern about apossible escalation in settler violence should the government extendthe moratorium on new settlement construction in the West Bank beyondthe end of September.
