Breaking: Illegal Zionist settlers vandalize dozens of Palestinian cars in West Bank hate crime
A group of illegal Zionist settlers have vandalized dozens of cars in a Palestinian village in West Bank, in what Palestinian authorities described as hate crime.
According to reports, the illegal settlers destroyed some 35 cars and spray-painted threatening slogans in Hebrew on the Palestinian-owned vehicles.
The attack occurred overnight in the village of Kafr Qassem, Mayor Adel Badir said on Thursday.
He described the attackers as “the most extreme group of terrorists.”
Badir said it resembled “price tag” attacks, a euphemism for Zionists hate crimes that target Palestinians in alleged retaliation for attacks against Israelis.
Badir called on “police to respond firmly to these extremists.”
“As long as there are no arrests and no one pays a price for these things, they will continue in villages.”
He said the village has been targeted by the illegal Zionist settlers, at least six times in recent years.
The latest incident came just two days after Zionist entity’s most-extremist candidate Itamar Ben-Gvir was poised to enter parliament after the Religious Zionism alliance he belongs to won six seats in Tuesday’s election.
Ben-Gvir, who has defended “price tag” suspects, once described as a “hero” an illegal extremist settler from New York who massacred Palestinian worshipers almost three decades ago.
Ben-Gvir, backed by Benjamin Netanyahu, has a history of encouraging violence against Palestinians in the occupied territories.
