France: Once again memorial plaque to murdered French Jew vandalised

The first time was in 2015:
Memorial to Murdered French Jew Ilan Halimi Vandalized

Via European Jewish Congress:
Ilan Halimi
A memorial plaque in the Paris suburb of Bagneux in memory of the French Jewish youth Ilan Halimi, who was tortured and murdered in 2006, was defaced with antisemitic inscriptions. 
The plaque, which is in a park, was discovered on Wednesday morning by a couple walking in the area, Bagneux’s mayor, Marie-Hélène Amiable, said. 
A swastika with the slogan ‘Free Fofana’, the name of the man who headed the gang which murdered Halimi, as well as the word ‘Hitler’ were written on the plaque.
The desecration was widely condemned including by the mayor, the interior minister and the CRIF umbrella organisation of French Jews, the country’s EJC affiliate.
