No one has taken responsibility for the incident.
The National Bureau of Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism (BNVCA) has called on the prosecutor "to take into consideration the racist character of the degradations in this old Jewish cemetery, which constitute an anti-Semitic act despite the absence of any inscription."
