Anti-Arab graffiti was painted on several cars in a Palestinian village in the West Bank.

Six cars were vandalised in the attack in the village of Jit in the northern West Bank near Nablus. The tires on three of the cars also were slashed, according to reports.

It is the second such incident in two days. On Monday, cars were vandalised in the eastern Jerusalem neighbourhood of Silwan.

“Death to Arabs” and “Transfer Now,” read some of the graffiti, written in Hebrew. One slogan said: “Regards to Yitzhak Gabbay,” who was found guilty in an Israeli court and jailed for an arson attack on the Max Rayne Hand in Hand School in Jerusalem, a school for Jewish and Arab children that promotes co-existence.

Police said they are investigating the incident.

Help perform the greatest mitzvah: save a life

While life in Israel has returned to normal and hopes are high that Britain is set for a summer without restrictions thanks to vaccines, for billions around the world there is no such imminent light at the end of the tunnel. In the majority of countries around the globe, particularly the poorest, the vaccine rollout has barely kicked off.

That's why Jewish News, the leading source of news and opinion for the entire UK community, is throwing its full weight behind UNICEF’s VaccinAid campaign by using this platform usually reserved for encouraging donations towards our own journalism to instead urge our readers around the globe to perform the greatest mitzvah: saving a life.

We have never before done this for any charity fundraiser but it's hard to recall a campaign that affects so many people, and indeed an entire planet aching for a return to normality. Just like the Chief Rabbi and Rachel Riley, we hope to boost the mission to deliver two billion vaccines, 165 million treatments and 900 million test kits around the world by the end of this year.

Please donate as much as you can, in the spirit of the Talmudic sages: “to save one life is to save the world entire”
