A catholic monastery was attacked by vandals painting slogans on its external walls on Tuesday.

Beyond the graffiti; no damages were recorded and no one was hurt, says Police spokeswoman Luba Samri.

She says the words “revenge” and “heathen shall die” were painted in Hebrew on the monastery walls, near the city of Beit Shemesh.

Jewish ultranationalists have been behind a great number of similar attacks on Palestinian mosques, Christian churches and Israeli police in Israel and the occupied West Bank in later years. The attacks are most likely in revenge over illegal settlements, also being illegal according to Israeli legislation, being removed by Israeli police.
