Report: 4 settler teens detained for arson, vandalism
Advertisements [?]
TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- The lawyer of four young settlers is blaming the education of the teenagers for their alleged acts of vandalism and arson targeting Palestinians, the daily news site Ynet reported on Sunday.

The four, three said to be minors and a fourth only 20-years-old, were detained on suspicion they torched Palestinian vehicles in Hebron during May.

According to the report, the young women were suspected to have carried out the petty crimes out in what settlers call the "price tag policy," which sees settlers attack Palestinians and their property in retribution for Israeli government or military action limiting settler activity.

The lawyer for some of the young women was said to have explained, "this was one way teens relieved stress nowadays."
