“Don’t touch our lands” and “price tag” were found spray painted in Hebrew on the walls of a house in the village of Sinjil.

Three gas tanks were found next to the building. Police were investigating the incident.

The term “price tag” refers to acts of violence perpetrated by pro-settler extremists in response to government actions they deem anti-settlement.
