Institute: Jewish extremists destroy Palestinian graves

Racist slogans are sprayed over gravestones in an old Muslim cemetery in Jerusalem, the site of a dispute between Palestinians and supporters of a museum being built on the precinct.
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Jewish extremists destroyed Palestinian tombstones on Wednesday in the northern Israeli town of Beisan, the Al-Aqsa Institute for Waqf and Heritage said.

A delegation from the institute visited the cemetery in the town, known in Israel as Beit Shean, and found a large number of graves destroyed and vandalized, official PA news agency Wafa reported.

“Extremist Jews seek to obliterate what is left of Islamic landmarks in the city,” said Sami Rizqallah, a deputy in the institute.

In September 2011, racist slogans were sprayed on Palestinian gravestones in the Muslim cemetery of Mamilla in Jerusalem. The graffiti read “price tag” and “death to the Arabs.”
