Israeli settlers vandalised Palestinian cars with racist terms in Jerusalem on 5 June 2017

Israeli settlers attacked a Palestinian neighbourhood of occupied East Jerusalem overnight Monday, vandalising cars and daubing racist graffiti.

Residents of Hizma woke up to find car tyres slashed, and slogans spray-painted on to vehicles and walls, according to reports.

The Hebrew-language slogans included: “The Arabs of Jerusalem are considered terrorists, expel or kill them”, “Let us deal with them,” “There is no place in Israel for foreigners and the enemies of God,” and “God is our king”.

Israeli police said the incident was under investigation, but at the time of writing, no suspects had been arrested.

Jewish Israeli settlers and ultra-nationalist extremists often target Palestinians in so-called ‘price tag’ attacks, in the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and within the Green Line.

These attacks typically take the form of graffiti, vandalism, and damage to property, but can also entail physical assaults leading to injury or even fatalities.
