Posters of kidnapped women defaced in Bnei Brak; police hunt suspect

Israel Police say they are hunting for a suspect in Bnei Brak who defaced posters of women kidnapped to Gaza by Hamas terrorists on October 7.

Police say the posters were vandalized on Hazon Ish Street in the predominantly Haredi city.

Over 240 people were kidnapped to Gaza during the devastating Hamas attack. Relatives and supporters campaigning for the release of the hostages have used a poster campaign to highlight their plight.

Photographs of women on billboards or signs are regularly defaced by ultra-Orthodox extremists. In Jerusalem, the Egged bus cooperative was sued several times for refusing to allow ads with pictures of women on buses that travel through Haredi areas.
