Headstones at a local Jewish cemetery were recently knocked over.

The headstones were knocked over at the Stone Road Cemetery, located on Stonewood Avenue.

Sixteen headstones were toppled over at the Stone Road cemetery. The manager of the property says it happened sometime Tuesday night and was discovered on Wednesday.

Governor Cuomo however announced Thursday he’s launching a full investigation into what happened: “New York has zero tolerance for bias or discrimination of any kind, and we will always stand united in the face of anti-Semitism and divisiveness.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA also released a statement:
