The words "Never again Palestinian terrorism" were bombed on a truck by Israeli settlers this week, incidents similar have been reported around the West Bank.

 
On Friday, police said they was investigating a similar act of vandalism committed on a building and cars in a Palestinian village near Bethlehem.
 
Residents of the village of Jaba, southwest of Bethlehem, discovered spray-painted graffiti on homes and cars in the morning, as well as tires on nine vehicles.
 
Among the graffiti, were stars of David and the words "evacuation of Bat Ayin - revenge."
 
The day before, the Israeli police had demolished toilets illegally built near a synagogue in the nearby town of Bat Ayin.
 
Police opened an investigation last week after the tires of several Palestinian cars were punctured in East Jerusalem at night.
 
According to the police, vehicles were damaged in two different places in the West Bank; Jenin and Nablus.
 
This act was considered an alleged anti-Arab hate crime.
 
A photograph of one of the places shows a truck on which the words "never again of Arab terrorism" were spray painted.
 
A similar attack took place overnight in the Palestinian village of Asira al-Qibliya, in the northern West Bank, near Nablus, according to reports.
 
The police also noted that they were interested in information about an alleged hate crime committed in the Palestinian town of Urif, where vandals painted a Star of David alongside the slogan "Fight enemy, not friend.”
 
Last Wednesday, Palestinian residents of Urif, in the northern West Bank, on their awakening, discovered a burning car and bombings, in Hebrew, on the walls of a building.
 
Palestinian residents of the Nablus region are often attacked by settlers.
 
In the last month, a Palestinian mother of eight, was killed when it was a cut stone that was projected through the car's windshield, striking Aisha Rabi in the head.
 
Israeli police and Shin Bet have opened investigations into the incident, which remains under embargo.
 
The frequency of these attacks by Israeli settlers has increased in recent months.
