Two cars were set on fire and graffiti was sprayed in the Palestinian town of Beit Iksa, near Jerusalem, on Friday night, with the spray-painted slogan referencing the death of an Israeli settler.
"Greetings from Ahuvia," read the graffiti, referring to Ahuvia Sandak, a 16-year-old killed in a car crash during a chase with police, who suspected him of throwing stones at Palestinians.
Sandak's death in December sparked a wave of violence, with security officials saying dozens – or more – attacks on Palestinians have occurred since. The graffiti also included a Star of David.
Sandak was a resident of Maoz Esther, an unauthorized outpost in the West Bank built on private Palestinians. Residents have returned after being evicted multiple times for over a decade.
Last month, Maj. Gen. Tamir Yadai, the head of the military's Central Command, met with settlers from the outpost, with a military source saying the purpose was to try to "find common ground" and stop the attacks on Palestinians.
