Noteworthy, the Palestinian attacker was believed to carry out his operation as a response to the extreme measures and harassments the Israeli Occupation Authorities implement in Jerusalem.

The torched cars ( Fiat 1981 and Opel 1986) belong to citizens Omar Manasra and Anwar Bader. The attackers were reported to pour a flammable substance into the cars and set them on fire, causing them to totally burn down.

Members of Price Tag are relative to fanatic religious groups that reinforce extreme violence and terror attacks against Arabs and their properties. During the past five years,  such groups carried out attacks against Muslim and Christian places of worship and arson attacks that left Palestinian family burned down to death.

Also, one of the most heinous crimes Price Tag gangster ever committed is the burning of kid Mohammad Abu Khdair alive.
