Cars vandalised in east Jerusalem

 Vandals slashed the tyres of 11 cars in a Palestinian neighbourhood of east Jerusalem early on Wednesday, a police spokeswoman said, in an apparent Jewish nationalist attack.



Jerusalem: Vandals slashed the tyres of 11 cars in a Palestinian neighbourhood of east Jerusalem early on Wednesday, a police spokeswoman said, in an apparent Jewish nationalist attack.

"The tyres of 11 cars belonging to (Arab) residents of Beit Safafa were punctured overnight," Luba Samri said in a statement.

One of the cars was spray-painted with a technical phrase linked to the Army`s eviction of hardline Jewish settlers from wildcat outposts, suggesting the vandalism may have been perpetrated by far-right activists. 

Such actions are known as "price tag" incidents, a euphemism for nationalist hate crimes which predominantly target Palestinians or Arab Israelis but have also been directed at left-wing Jews. 

The incident took place just six weeks after Jewish extremists torched a first-grade classroom in Jerusalem`s only Jewish-Arab school, a rare symbol of coexistence which is also located in Beit Safafa.
