Incidents of vandalism and attacks against Palestinians in the West Bank are commonly referred to as “price tag” attacks.
Price Tag is an anti-Palestinian Jewish group that routinely attacks Palestinians in the occupied territories and the Green Line.
The Israeli occupation government still refuses to label it as a terrorist organization and considers it only as a group of vandals.
There has been a sharp spike in settler violence against Palestinians and their properties in the occupied Palestinian territories.
The violent acts include beating, throwing stones, issuing threats, torching fields, destroying trees and crops, stealing crops, using live fire, and damaging homes and cars.
There are 280 illegal settlements in the West Bank, which are home to more than 440,000 Israeli settlers.
In the first half of 2021, 416 anti-Palestinian incidents perpetrated by extremist Israeli settlers were reported – more than double the figure for the first half of 2020 and more than all of 2019.
Of the 416 incidents reported between January and June of 2021, there were approximately 139 incidents of vandalism, stone-throwing, assaults and so-called price-tag incidents
In 2019, there were 363 incidents and 507 reported in 2020.
