Three acquitted of 2012 ‘price tag’ attack at Palestinian village

The Be’er Sheva District Court acquitted on Monday three Jewish youth who were accused of committing a “price tag attack” at the Palestinian village as-Samu in southern Mount Hebron. The three were cleared of charges of hate crime, but were convicted of hindering a police officer in the line of duty, and one of them was also convicted of assaulting the police officer. They were arrested in December 2012 on suspicion they tried to set a car on fire and spray “price tag” graffiti. Police found spray cans, flammable materials, pocket knives and a fake M-16 rifle in their car.
