Not only that, Price taggers gangsters drew the flag of the occupation state on the rocks and on the commercial panels on the side of the road, which links Nablus with Tulkarm. This is to show how aggressive they became in the attempt to  irk  Palestinians who use that road.


It should be marked that the gang of Price taggers has been so active in the Palestinian territories. The gang's attacks are represented in torching cars and houses, cutting down trees, and breaking into rural communities in addition to setting fire to Islamic and Christian worshiping places.

It is known that the authorities of the occupation are aware of the gang's plans and moves but still they stand aside with no interference. On contrary , the army provides all means of protection for the colonists of price taggers at times of their attacks. Data shows a notable escalation and increment of violations day after day.

Some resources and information claim that these colonists are becoming armed militias aiming at striking the Palestinian existence and bringing down the determination and will of the Palestinian farmer.
