IMEMC & Agencies: A number of extremist Israeli settlers attacked on Tuesday evening  the village of Aseera Al-Qibliyya, near the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and burnt the room of the guard of the local water storage facility.

Local sources have reported that the settlers burnt the room of the guard who managed to escape unharmed.
The settlers also tried to attack a number of homes in the village.

On Tuesday morning, a number of extremist settlers slashed tires of 28 Palestinian cars in Abu Gosh area in occupied Easy Jerusalem.

On Monday evening, a number of settlers attacked a brick factory near Huwwara village, south of Nablus, and tried to burn it.

The latest attacks seem to be part of the seriously escalating Price Tag attacks carried out by extremist settler groups against the Palestinians and their property.

On Friday [June 14 2013] extremist settlers set ablaze two Palestinian cars in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, in occupied East Jerusalem, and wrote racist graffiti, including Price Tag.

On Thursday June 13 2013] extremist settlers defaced a Christian Cemetery in Jaffa, and spray-painted “Price Tag”, and “Revenge” on tombstones.

On Friday [June 7 2013], Israeli extremists burnt a Palestinian car in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.

Price Tag is the slogan the settlers use in attacking the Palestinians and their property, including mosques, churches and graveyards.

It refers to holding the Palestinians responsible for the Israeli eviction of some illegal outposts.
