Yitzhar Youth to be Charged with Gush Halav Vandalism

Indictments will be filed in the Nazareth District Court, Monday, charging three minors from Yitzhar with "price tag" vandalism last month in the Galilee Arab settlement of Jeesh, built on the ruins of the Jewish community of Gush Halav. The charges are vandalizing ground, damaging a vehicle and racist motivation for a crime.

"Price tag" vandalism is property damage accompanied by nationalist graffiti, first seen with the use of the Hebrew words for "price tag", carried out against Arab and leftist targets in response to actions and threats against Jews in Judea and Samaria (Shomron).
