“Concerned to see a Mt. Zion Holy Site targeted again. We spoke with the Churches, and welcome Israeli, PA, and the intl. community calls for accountability,” the tweet read.
It added that Religious site vandalism by anyone is unacceptable and Jerusalem must be a city for all of its people.
In addition, the US Special Envoy to monitor and combat anti-Semitism Deborah Lipstadt condemned the ‘despicable act’ and called for respecting the sanctity of burial.
On Twitter, she said, “Families have the right to peacefully lay to rest loved ones. We must work together to call out all forms of hate whenever and wherever they occur.”
Several days ago, footage documented Israeli settlers wreaking havoc on a Christian cemetery in occupied Jerusalem and vandalizing several graves.
Palestinian reports reported that more than 40 headstones were destroyed by the Israeli settlers in occupied Jerusalem.
