Gangsters of such type are reported taught the ideology of leftism in Israeli religious groups. “Hatred for Arabs” and “kill them all” are some of their slogans. 

 It should be mentioned that Price taggers escalated their attacks on sacred places of worship be them Christian or Muslim  in the West Bank and Jerusalem. Setting fire to those places was a prominent means to express their grudge. Another means was writing discriminative and hatred-enticing slogans on walls, indicating “Death to Arabs and Muslims” and offenses against Prophet Mohammad(PBOH).

It should also be mentioned that colonists worked on forming a gang named” Revenge” and ” Price tag”, the attacks of which are to be represented in torching and damaging vehicles, houses and worshiping places. This hatred and revenge  ideology is derived from the extremists Rabbis  in the Israeli government who believe in the necessity to terminate all Arabs and Muslims

It should be noted that Turmus’ayya is a hot spot for colonists’ attacks that are represented in cutting down olive trees and attempts to take over lands to serve the colonial plan.

Human rights activist Zakariya As-Sadeh told LRC observer: “during April 22 price tag attacks were documented in the Palestinian suburbs, 15 of them are in Nablus suburbs, most of their attacks feature writing hatred inciting slogans and ruining car tires. Nevertheless, price tag gangsters sabotaged 986 olive trees in Nablus.”
