Suspected ‘price tag’ in West Bank village

Witnesses in village of Dir Istiya report seeing Israeli car fleeing scene where three cars were torched, ‘price tag Gal Arye Yosef’ sprayed on mosque fence.

by Yair Altman

Three cars were torched and a mosque wall was spray painted with the sentence “price tag Gal Arye Yosef” in the village of Dir Istiya near Ariel in the early hours of Wednesday morning. The sentence refers to the name of an illegal outpost that was evacuated in the last few days.

Police and IDF forces arrived at the scene in order to investigate the incident and gather evidence from the crime scene.

The head of the Dir Istiya local council, Nazmi Salaman, told Ynet that at 1:40 am residents noticed a car with three passengers and an Israeli license plate driving at high speed on the village’s main street towards the exit. “Immediately after that the residents noticed that three cars parked cars were on fire near the mosque and one of the fences that surround the mosque had the ‘price tag’ graffiti.”

Salaman added that at first the residents called the Palestinian DCO to report the incident, later Israeli police along with IDF troops arrived due to the fact that Dir Istiya is in Area C. “This is a continuation of attacks against Palestinians and mosques in the West Bank,” he said.

He noted that this was the second time that village property was vandalized. “The first time was in September when the Palestinian Authority launched their UN bid, and then settlers came and unsuccessfully tried to set the mosque on fire.”

  1. Why would someone *like* this???

  3. I “like” that these people are exposed for what they are doing

  4. How can anyone “LIKE” hate?

  5. And on a more important note Muslims killled innocent women and children yesterday in the middle east.

  6. So Michael, ur saying there was absolutely no murder that took place in usa or any other country in the world yesterday?

  7. @Michael: Hmm. Why highlight Muslims? Only Muslims killing innocents? How do you know it’s because of Islam? Christian gangsters killing off innocents don’t kill because of Christianity. It’s them who kill. Now some misled Muslims murder innocents and you highlight the fact that they are Muslim? Why try to frame Islam?

  8. no one show the religion of murders only if he is a muslim, thats why some people are smart as michael

  10. Completely agree w/ Miftah Rasheed Amir. Very well said!
