The phrase "When Jews are stabbed we will not be silent" and a star of David were spray painted on one wall, and graffiti reading "Arabs = enemies" and "There's no place in Israel for enemies" was also found.
Police said they are investigating the incident, and an Israel Police statement said that a large number of officers were sent to check the scene, where they uncovered even more vandalized cars.
Joint List MK Yousef Jabareen condemned the vandalism on Twitter, writing: "Another severe hate crime – in Shuafat. Again, the authorities are closing their eyes. Hundreds of cars have been damaged at this point, as well as dozens of houses of prayer and thousands of trees. Not to forget the murder of the Dawabshe family."
