In addition, vandals also spray-painted a Star of David on buildings in the Palestinian town of Huwara in the West Bank, alongside slogans in Hebrew that read: "Poor government when will you fight against the enemy." Several car tires were also slashed.

The Star of David symbol was also spray painted on a Palestinian grave. Israel Police said it had launched an investigation into the matter.

"Poor government when will you fight against the enemy," says the graffiti that appeared in the Palestinian town of Huwara in the West Bank on May 3, 2019.

Earlier this week, Palestinians reported damage had been caused to dozens of olive trees in the Palestinian town of Burqa in the West Bank. No Hebrew writings were found at the scene. The police launched an investigation into the incident.

In April, twenty-five cars were vandalized in a suspected hate crime in the Palestinian village of Ein Yabroud in the West Bank.

Star of David symbols as well as "Revenge" and "This village helps murderers" writings were spray painted on cars and tires were punctured. The police said they opened an investigation. A forensic unit entered the village with protection from the Israeli Defense Forces.

A week earlier, 150 vines and almond trees were vandalized in the Palestinian village of Deir Jarir, near Ein Yabroud. Star of David and "Price Tag" was spray painted there as well. The police say it is also investigating that incident.
