A synagogue in Jerusalem was vandalized overnight, the assailants spray-painting black crosses across the front of the Jewish house of worship.

Police are currently investigating the incident.

Wadi Abu Nasser, a local spokesman for the Catholic Church, condemned the apparent hate crime, stating, “All peoples should respect each other, especially the others’ holy sites.”

Recent anti-Christian vandalism against churches in Jerusalem received heavy press coverage, while such attacks on synagogues typically garner less attention, though they occur no less frequently.
