300 Olive Trees Destroyed in Arab Area near Hevron


Police are investigating the destruction, discovered Thursday evening, of about 300 olive trees in an Arab area next to the Judean Arab village of Chirbath Al-Carmel, which is next to Hevron.

Near the scene, the words "price tag" and "greetings from Be'er Sheva' and Tel Aviv" were also discovered. "Price tag" is a term that has been applied to vandalism in response to acts or the threats of acts against Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria (Shomron). Sometimes it has been written at vandalism sites to incriminate Jews.
