Vandals Damage Hevron Cemetery Wall

Vandals over the weekend drew anti-Israel and anti-Semitic graffiti on the wall of the Jewish cemetery in Hevron. The grafitti was written in Arabic, and among the  scrawled terms was “Palestine belongs to the Arabs,” and “KKK,” an apparent reference to the American racist group. The vandals also damaged direction signs on the Hevron Biblical path, directing visitors to different sites in the area.

The damage was discovered Sunday morning by visitors to Hevron. Police have opened an investigation.
