Israel: Graves vandalized on Jerusalem’s Mount of Olives cemetery

More than 40 graves were vandalized at the Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives. 
The vandalized graves were located in the Ger Hasidic section of the Jerusalem cemetery. Many headstones were toppled over or smashed, and brass lamps and other items were stolen. 
Residents of Maale Hazeitim, located across the street from the cemetery, said that masked Arab youths vandalized the cemetery and that police did not intervene for more than an hour, waiting until reinforcements arrived, according to the committee.
