Jerusalem Post: "Activist's home vandalized in latest 'price tag' attack"

Graffiti spray painted on door to known Peace Now activist's home in Jerusalem; organization head calls for speedy police investigation.

Graffiti was spray painted on the door to a known Peace Now activist's home in Jerusalem on Monday in the newest "price tag" attack.

"Migron price tag" and "Peace Now the end is coming" were written on the activist's door and the stairway.

Peace Now Secretary-General Yariv Oppenheimer called for the police to move quickly in their investigation of the crime.

Police became increasingly concerned by far-right attacks in the area, and announced the establishment of a special task force on Wednesday to track down those behind "price tag" attacks.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said "This was an abhorrent crime directed against commanders and vehicles, the mission of which is to protect the lives of Israeli civilians in Judea and Samaria."

In the past, right-wing extremists have punctured the tires of military jeeps, torched a military vehicle and even thrown a fire bomb at one, but they have never infiltrated a base.

On Tuesday morning, the night after the IDF razed three homes in the Migron outpost, settlers set fire to property in a mosque near Nablus.

The state destroyed the homes after a petition filed to the High Court claimed that they were built following an agreement that the whole outpost would be moved to neighboring Adam. The High Court ruled that the Migron settlement was illegally constructed on Palestinian
