The state has set aside millions of shekels to establish a special police unit to fight the phenomenon of price-tag attacks.
The unit will have some 50 new officers by the end of the year, boosting its numbers from 30 to 80, according to a letter sent by the State Prosecutor's Office on Thursday to the International Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists.
In addition to consolidating the anti-price-tag attack police force, the letter said the Shin Bet security agency came a long way this past year fighting Jewish violence against Palestinians, issuing "dozens" of restraining orders against offenders.
The past few years have seen an increase in violence targeting Palestinian property, including the uprooting of olive trees, damaging cars, homes and other property, and spray-painting hateful graffiti on Arab property. Price-tag attacks have also been committed against Israel Defense Forces property.
The phenomenon is believed to have begun when the IDF began evacuating illegal Jewish outposts in the West Bank in the last few years.
