Police on the scene in Hizma

In a possible retaliation for Sunday’s murder of an Israeli security guard in the Old City of Jerusalem, Arab cars and walls in Hizma, a town in Area B, near the neighborhoods of Neve Yaakov and Pisgat Ze’ev in northeastern Jerusalem, were sprayed with nationalistic graffiti and tires were slashed, Israel police reported Monday morning.

Police forensic investigators arrived at the scene.


The mayor of Hizma claimed the visitors also tried to break into three homes in his town. The three homes in question are separated from the rest of the town by the security wall, making them part of Area C.

Adiel Kolman, 32, father of four, died Sunday night at the Shaare Zedek Medical Center of the critical wounds he sustained in stabbing attack in the Old City. Kolman, a resident of Kochav Hashahar in Binyamin, was stabbed in his upper body by a terrorist on HaGai Street near the Iron Gate. He underwent a series of operations, but his condition deteriorated and was finally pronounced dead.

His funeral will take place at 11 AM at Kochav Hashahar.

Following are the slogans with translations, which Arab media described as “racist.”
