Residents of the Arab village Ivteen, located next to Kiryat Tivon, woke up Wednesday morning to find radical right-wing graffiti on the exterior walls of the Omat Ben-Hativ mosque.

Right-wing extremists had apparently vandalized the mosque by spraying a Star of David and various offensive statements. Among the graffiti was the decree "There will be war over Judea and Samaria." Another slogan read "this structure is destined for demolition."
