Palestinian cars vandalized in suspected attack linked to Jerusalem tensions

Police are investigating after cars in the Palestinian village Jinsafut were vandalized, apparently in connection to tensions in Jerusalem’s Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.

Police say cars in the village were damaged and Hebrew spray paint found on walls reads “There will be a war over Shimon Hatzaddik,” using the Hebrew name for Sheikh Jarrah.

Jewish extremists have been known to vandalize property and leave threatening messages in Palestinian towns as part of a so-called “price tag” campaign meant to terrorize locals and pressure Israeli authorities.

The village is largely in Area C under the Oslo Accords, placing it under full Israeli civilian control.
