Settlers Arrested For Allegedly Carrying Out Hebron 'Price Tag' Attack

'Price tag' refers to Jewish extremists' practice of retributive attacks on Palestinians and Arabs.

Three residents of Jewish West Bank settlements were arrested on suspicion of carrying out a price tag attack near Hebron.

The men were arrested late Sunday night after a car was set ablaze in the Palestinian village of Dahariya near Hebron. The words "price tag" were spray painted on a wall near the arson attack.
