Vandals have sprayed “hate graffiti” on Deir Rafat, a monastery in central Israelaccording to an Associated Press report.
The cars of nearby tires were also slashed.
The wire service reported that “extremist Jewish settlers” are suspected in the attack on the monastery, which was built by the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem in the 1920s and is operated by the Sisters of St. Dorothy.
