Several Jewish gravestones at the cemetery on the Mount of Olives were found desecrated Friday afternoon, hours after a Palestinian man from East Jerusalem’s Ras al-Amud, which is adjacent to the site, injured five people in a car attack.

It is not clear if the two incidents were connected but police said there would be “zero tolerance” for any attempts of public disturbances.

    The Israeli government is responsible for theses shameful acts, as they fail to install security cameras in all areas of tge cemetery. Citizenc have begged the government to have a number of police stations buildat the cemetery and to bring legistlation to punish those caught desecrating severly, but tge police just speaks empty words. Shame on those who cant protect tge memory of their dead!!

  • That cemetery is the resting place of many of the most distinguished Rabbis and Jewish leaders.

    Why is that cemetery not being guarded 24 hours a day 365 days a year?
