Antisemitic graffiti was spray-painted at a hotel in Geneva, Switzerland, where a delegation of teenaged science students from Tiberias was staying while visiting the city’s particle accelerator.
Security around the delegation was reinforced.
The mayor of Tiberias, Ron Cobi, published a picture of the incident, depicting a swastika drawn and the words “I love Hitler” in English inscribed on the side of one of the bunk beds.
“Our mature students understand the meaning and responsibility of such an incident,” Cobi wrote on Facebook.
“The Foreign Affairs Ministry and the Education Ministry are handling the matter and security has been strengthened.”
This incident is just the latest in a recent string of antisemitic incidents that have occurred around Europe since the weekend.
