Vandals strike Arab neighbourhood in Jerusalem
Jerusalem: Police say vandals have slashed car tires in an Arab neighbourhood in Jerusalem, the latest in a series of similar incidents blamed on a fringe group of extremists.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said ten cars were damaged in the Arab neighbourhood of Beit Safafa early Tuesday. The words "price tag" was sprayed on walls nearby. The phrase is used by a small group of Jewish extremists to protest what they perceive as the Israeli government`s pro-Palestinian policies.
The acts have been condemned by Israeli leaders across the political spectrum. Police said they are investigating.
Mosques, churches, dovish Israeli groups and even Israeli military bases have been targeted by the vandals in recent years. Two weeks ago a monastery near Jerusalem was defaced.
