An IDF position near Nablus in the West Bank was vandalized with swastikas overnight according to Israel Radio.

The vandals also spray painted the position with slogans calling for "death to Jews."

The star of David was equated to the swastikas.

In October 2014 anti-Semitic graffiti equating Jews and Nazis was found scrawled on the Temple Mount, leading to an outpouring of anger by Jewish and Zionist organizations.

The graffiti, showing a Star of David and a swastika joined by an equal sign, was found during a time of tension between Muslims and Jews at the holy site, with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas recently calling for Jewish pilgrims to be barred “by any means.”
