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."

The initial investigation concluded that the vandals had slashed the tires of a number of vehicles in the village.
Dozens of residents from the local area arrived at the mosque and expressed their anger over the incident.
