Police open probe into apparent hate crime targeting Palestinian village

Police open a probe into an apparent hate crime targeting the central West Bank Palestinian village of Deir Jarir.

Residents find dozens of grapevines and fruit trees uprooted and several Hebrew phrases graffitied on adjacent stones along with a red Star of David.

The phrases include “regards from Kfar Etzion,” which was a settlement targeted in a similar incident last month, and “price tag,” the phrase used to describe vandalism and other hate crimes usually carried out by Jewish ultra-nationalists in retaliation for government policies against the settler movement.
