The Israeli security establishment fears price tag attacks, which are the harming of Palestinians or their property by radical Israeli settlers, in the West Bank in response to the Amona evacuation. The Israel Police says that the danger is mainly posed by the youths who rioted and assaulted police officers today in the Amona synagogue.
After completing the Amona evacuation, the Israeli security establishment fears a rise in price tag attacks, which are the harming of Palestinians or their property by radical Israeli settlers. The suspicion that settlers will be seeking revenge is the result of numerous prior incidents, in which outpost evacuations led to these sorts of attacks against Palestinians in the West Bank.
The Israel Police says that the danger of price tag attacks is mainly posed by the dozens of youths who rioted and assaulted police officers during the Amona synagogue evacuation today. Therefore, the Israeli security establishment will be increasing their surveillance on the aforementioned youth’s movements. These efforts will be conducted for a short period of time in an attempt to prevent revenge attacks on Palestinians.
