Israelis set ablaze Palestinians’ cars

Israeli extremists have set fire to two vehicles at a Palestinian carwash in the occupied East al-Quds (Jerusalem).

The Israeli settlers torched the cars in the village of Sharafat on Wednesday.

The extremists had sprayed the word “revenge” on the side of one of the cars. The word “price tag” was also spray-painted on a nearby electrical closet.

Over the past few months, there has been an increase in attacks by the extremist settlers in East al-Quds and the occupied West Bank against Palestinian properties, including farms, homes, cars as well as mosques. On many occasions, the attacks have led to clashes with Palestinians.

In mid-December 2011, the settlers set fire to a Palestinian mosque in the West Bank village of Burqa.

Israeli extremists say 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 al-Quds.”

The extremists are rarely brought to justice for the attacks and when a court proceeding is carried out, light sentences are often issued against them.
