Israel Police and the Jerusalem Municipality cleared a "memorial garden" which was erected in east Jerusalem in honor of terrorists who carried out attacks in Israel's most recent terror wave, according to a joint-statement issued Tuesday.

The "memorial" was set up in the Ras al-Amud neighborhood of east Jerusalem in a public area. Suspects planted trees, without the required permits, and hung pictures of terrorists that carried out attacks in recent months. They also spray-painted a nearby wall.

The trees, pictures, and graffiti were removed by joint Police and Jerusalem municipality forces.
