Remand for 'Price Tag' Girls Extended Two Days

The Petach Tikva Magistrates Court extended by 48 hours, Sunday, the remand of seven girls arrested in the pre-dawn hours on suspicion of participation in "price tag" vandalism at the Binyamin Brigade headquarters in Beit El, according to the Honenu legal-aid organization, which represented them. The "price tag" label has been applied to incidents where vandals spray paint the Hebrew words "Tag Mechir" where vandalism takes place, usually in response to demolitions or other activities against Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria. In this case, the vandalism followed a demolition in the Binyamin-region Jewish community of Migron.

The girls are also suspected of entering a military tent in the Shilo bloc, turning cots over, and clashing with soldiers.
