Dozens of wooden and concrete crosses of the tombs were also smashed.

Dr Dvir Abramovich, Chairman of the ADC, said: “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this abominable attack which is an affront to all Christians and to all Jews.

Our hearts go to church affected. We trust that the  Israeli police will vigorously investigate this crime and bring to justice those extremists who perpetrated this depraved act. Freedom of religion is a fundamental value in Israeli society and we know that the government and people of Israel reject these repugnant violations of decency and harmony and are committed to countering religious intolerance whenever it occurs.”
