Several cars belonging to the Palestinian residents of the West Bank have been set on fire allegedly by extremist Israeli settlers.
On Monday, a group of vandals torched the cars of a number of Palestinian residents in the town of Beitin in the central West Bank, a Press TV correspondent reported.
Israeli police are investigating the incident to determine whether the attack was related to the so-called “price tag” policy of the extremist settlers in the West Bank.
Extremist Israeli settlers usually leave graffiti wherever they attack, according to the report, however, no such evidence was found after the Monday incident.
Over the past few months there has been an increase in attacks by the extremist settlers in the West Bank against Palestinian properties, including mosques, farms, homes and cars.
Last week, the extremists set fire to a Palestinian mosque in the village of Burqa.
According to the report, Palestinians are unable to defend their properties as the areas that come under attack are “controlled by Israeli police.”
Moreover, the extremist settlers are “very seldom” brought to justice and the sentences issued against them are “ridiculously low.”
Israeli extremists claim that the “price tag” attacks are carried out against any Israeli policy “to reduce the presence of Jewish settlers and settlements on occupied Palestinian land in the West Bank and East Jerusalem (al-Quds).”
