In the village of Manshiet Zibdeh, located in what is now Israel, a mosque was defaced with racist graffiti on Thursday morning, and cars parked at the mosque had their tires punctured.

Israeli police were called in by the Imam of the Mosque when the graffiti was found, but they failed to carry out any kind of investigation or locate the assailant.

This was considered to be a “price tag” attack, which is a tactic used by Israeli right-wing settlers to, as they claim, make Palestinians ‘pay a price’ for living on their ancestral land – land which the Israeli settlers want to take over.

In a similar attack toward the end of last month, about 70 vehicles had their tires slashed in the town of Jaljulia in Israel.
