Cars were damaged and graffiti spray painted throughout a Palestinian village in the central West Bank village of al-Mughayir.

The vandalism likely occurred on Saturday night, but was discovered on Sunday, according to reports.

Among the slogans found on the cars and walls in the village were: “Revenge,” “Price tag” and “Enough with administrative orders.” Administrative orders ban Jewish residents of the West Bank from entering the area in order to cut down on settler violence. Price tag is used to indicate revenge for attacks on settlers and other Israelis, or when legal action is taken against one of their own.

Sunday’s vandalism comes after tires were slashed and graffiti spray painted in two Palestinians villages in the northern West Bank, allegedly by extremist settlers who live in the area.

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”
