Police are investigating a possible price-tag attack on Mount Herzl early Tuesday morning, after 20 plaques engraved with the names of heads of state who planted trees in the Forest of Nations were defaced.

According to an official, the names of the leaders were vandalized and the words “Kahane was right,” were written on a nearby wall. Meir Kahane was a prominent and outspoken radical right-wing American-Israeli rabbi and former MK who advocated the expulsion of Arabs from Israel. He was murdered in New York City in 1990 at the age of 58 by the Egyptian-American El Sayyid Nosair.

The vandalism took place just 24 hours after an alleged price-tag attack in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Hanina, where the tires of three vehicles were slashed, and four others deflated.
