Israeli police arrested a 43-year-old man on Tuesday suspected of defacing a memorial to Yitzhak Rabin in Tel Aviv with a swastika. The suspect was armed with two knives.

According to police, a swastika was drawn on a statue of Rabin, located at the site of his assassination, along with the words "thank you, 6 million" written in German.

Police received a report about a suspicious man near the scene, apparently under the influence of alcohol. Police found him with two knives, two markers and a book before they detained him and brought him in for interrogation.
