Israeli Right-wingers Vandalize Islamic And Christian Cemeteries In Jaffa
On Friday night, eve of the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur, a group of Israeli extremists broke into both an Islamic and a Christian cemetery in the city of Jaffa, damaging graves and writing anti-Arab and Muslim slogans on the walls of the mausoleums, the Palestine News & Information Agency (WAFA) reported.
Palestinian residents of Jaffa who entered the cemetery for services on Saturday stated that the vandals had devastated their graveyard, and spray-painted slogans including 'Death to Arabs' and 'Pricetag' [a reference to a campaign by Israeli settlers to impose damage on Palestinian property in the West Bank] on the walls of tombs. They added that the group also broke into an orthodox Christian cemetery near al-Kazakhana, and destroyed some of the graves there.
