Colonists’ break-ins and arson attacks on Palestinians in the suburb areas are meant to terror and harass Palestinian citizens to push them out of their areas. The most vicious attack was the torching of Dawabsheh family while sleeping on August 2015, the same group of gangsters carried out many attacks in Salfit governorate varying from cutting down aging trees to shutting down agricultural roads and confiscating vast area of lands to serve the colonial expansion in the area.

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
