Saleh Diab, local resident and activist, told the Radio Bethlehem 2000 that the settlers conducted their act, apparently during early dawn hours, and left the scene.

Similar to dozens of similar attacks, the settlers wrote racist anti-Arab and anti-Palestinian graffiti.

Diab said that the residents contacted the Israeli police in the city, and filed complaints.

On Friday, May 24, extremist settlers punctured tires of five vehicles near the Gilo Israeli settlement, illegally built on Palestinian lands near Beit Jala city, in the West Bank district of Bethlehem.

The Israeli Police said that three of the cars belong to the Palestinians, and two cars are actually owned by Israelis, but the settlers apparently thought Palestinians own the two cars.

There have been dozens of attacks, referred to as Price Tag attacks, carried out by extremist Israeli settlers against Palestinian homes, cars and property, in addition to numerous attacks against churches, mosques and graveyards.
