Eight cars belonging to Palestinians were flattened by settlers on Sunday night in Shuafat, Jerusalem.

‘Death to Arabs’ and ‘Ulpana’ were written on cars as retaliation for the failure of the ‘Regulation Bill’ to go through which means the Ulpana outpost in Beit El settlement must be evicted.

The Israeli police claimed that an investigation crew has been set up to look into the matter.

It is worth mentioning that the failure of the Regulation Bill in the Knesset has led to an increase anti-Arab slogans in various areas in Jerusalem but no action has been taken against those who take part in it.
