Car tires were slashed and anti-Arab graffiti was found daubed on walls and vehicles near the Jewish neighborhood of Pisgat Ze’ev in East Jerusalem, police said on Monday.

Among the Hebrew-language slogans sprayed on the walls and vehicles were: “The Arabs of Jerusalem are considered terrorists, expel or kill them,” “Let us deal with them,” “There is no place in Israel for foreigners and the enemies of God,” and “God is our king,” according to photos from the scene.

Police opened an investigation and are searching for the vandals.

The graffiti was located the day after an Israeli was killed in a terror attack in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Palestinian Abd al-Rahman Bani Fadel, 28, from the northern West Bank village of Aqraba, stabbed to death Adiel Kolman in the Old City.

Kolman, a 32-year-old father of four from the Kochav Hashachar settlement in the West Bank, was taken to the hospital in a critical condition and later died of his wounds.

Fadel, who had a permit allowing him access to Jerusalem to seek employment, was shot dead at the scene by police.
