Residents of the southern Israeli community of Lehavim awoke Tuesday morning to find eight vehicles spray-painted with swastikas.
Israel police have opened an investigation into the incident. There are no further details about who may have carried out the vandalism.
The incident may or may not have taken place against the backdrop of the developing intifada in the country. Lehavim is located near a number of Bedouin towns in the south but is also not far from the major city of Be’er Sheva.
