Beit Jamal Monastery (Israel) (AFP) – Vandals have torn down concrete crosses marking dozens of graves at a Christian cemetery in central Israel, a church official said on Thursday.
Father Antonio Scodo, responsible for the upkeep of the Saint Stephen’s Church graveyard, within the Beit Jamal monastery, said the damage was spotted by nuns at an adjoining convent on Wednesday.
“But the deeds surely go back further,” he told AFP.
He said that the abuse of 26 gravesites was an act of desecration rather than random vandalism.
