Israel vows to curb settler violence

Text size Aa Aa

After a disused mosque in Jerusalem was torched, becoming the latest target of ultra nationalist settlers, the Israeli government has announced a crackdown on the culprits.

The building was defaced with graffiti and set a light in what’s become known as a “price tag” attack.

The term refers to vandalism against Palestinian property or Israeli soldiers by Jewish extremists each time the government does something they think is anti-settler.

The mosque incident follows a rampage at an Israeli military base in which vehicles were sabotaged.

The government has warned it will try suspects in military courts if apprehended, but critics say not enough is being done to stop what they describe as Jewish hooligans.
