RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers vandalized three Palestinian vehicles in the Turmusayya village in the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah and al-Bireh, early Friday morning.

Hebrew-language news outlets reported that footage from surveillance cameras shows three people damaging Palestinian-owned vehicles before fleeing the scene.

Israeli settlers smashed the windows and windshields of the vehicles, and spray-painted racist anti-Arab graffiti in the area.

Known as "price tag" attacks, extremist Israeli settlers carry out violent acts of punishment on Palestinians and their property to demonstrate their opposition to Israeli restrictions on settlements and outposts in the occupied West Bank and Palestinian towns and villages in Israel.

Many Palestinian activists and rights groups have accused Israel of fostering a "culture of impunity" for Israelis committing violent acts against Palestinians.

Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law, with recent announcements of settlement expansion provoking condemnation from the international community.
