Yesha Youth to be Charged with 'Price Tag' Arson


It was disclosed, Tuesday morning, that a youth from one of the Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria will be charged with arson in what is being described as an act of "price tag" vandalism in response to an act or threat of an act against Jews or Jewish communities in the region. The youth was detained and interrogated by police last week, along with two other residents of the area, on suspicion of spraying graffiti and other acts.

Samaria-Judea police told Arutz Sheva that the youth is being charged with torching a car, causing damage, spraying graffiti and interfering with police officers. The investigation against the other two youths continues. The three youths deny the accusations.
