Ten vehicles had their tires slashed and hate graffiti was painted on the walls of Turmus Ayya, an Arab village near Shiloh in Samaria Sunday.

The incident was reported by the Yesh Din organization. Photographs published by the organization showed a wall vandalized with graffiti which read "To wreak vengeance upon the nations," a quote from Psalm 149.

The phrases “Let us take care of them” and “We’ll take our fate into our own hands” were also found written in Hebrew at the scene.

The Israel police are investigating the incident as a nationalistically motivated 'price tag' hate crime.

According to the Shin Bet, anti-Arab hate crimes have risen significantly since the beginning of the year.
