4 girls arrested for 'price tag' violence

10:00 Jun 19 2011 Hebron

Ynet 19 June -- Police have arrested four female right-wing activists -- three of them minors -- on suspicion they torched Palestinian vehicles last month in Hebron. Officers suspect the girls have carried out a number of acts as part of the settlers' 'Price tag policy', and believe that their arrest will restore relative calm to the West Bank. The Jerusalem Magistrates' Court remanded by three days the arrest of one suspect, 20-year old Yaska Weiss of Kiryat Arba. Police first began suspecting the girls when a Palestinian vehicle was torched early one morning near Hebron. An ensuing investigation led to the arrests of two 15-year old girls and a 17-year old -- all of whom reside in Jerusalem and the area. Weiss was arrested on Sunday. The investigation has revealed a number of other crimes related to an unofficial revenge policy upheld by right-wing extremists, termed 'Price tag', police say. Two of the minors were released under house arrest while the third remains in custody. Officers are planning additional arrests ... The girls are being represented by Attorney Naftali Wertzbiger, who told Ynet this was one way teens relieved stress nowadays.
