An Israel Defense Forces soldier is suspected of perpetrating a  so-called “price tag” attack in a Palestinian West Bank village, Haaretz  learned on Friday, following recently intercepted security camera  footage.
The Golani Brigade soldier and resident of the Itamar settlement was  arrested along with two young women after footage indicated the three  vandalizing the Palestinian village of Luban al-Sharqiya near Nablus.
According to a preliminary investigation, the three are suspected of  entering the West Bank village on 1:30 A.M. Tuesday, where they sprayed  the caption “Muhammad is a pig” on one of the walls and sabotaged a  construction materials shop.

Security camera footage provided by Israeli NGO B’Tselem, displayed  below, shows one of the young women stabbing sacks of building material  piled up near the shop.
Later, a confrontation ensued between the three and local residents who  woke up following the ruckus, during which the IDF soldier threatened  the Palestinians with his rifle, causing them to flee the scene.
Suspects linked to the case were arrested on Thursday, with their arrest remanded until Monday.
The solder admitted to the act and is scheduled to be detained until Monday.
In addition, Orien Nizri from Jerusalem, known for her West Bank  activism, and Sarah Goldberg from the settlement of Tapuach were  arrested over suspicion that they were the young women in the car.
The young women are to be detained until Tuesday following a remand hearing in a Jerusalem magistrate’s court.
