Spate of anti-Semitic graffiti in Geneva

Geneva city workers have been working to remove anti-Semitic graffiti across the city since the Hamas attack on Israel.

The city says it has never seen such a phenomenon. Many of the tags are also accompanied by a swastika. 

Unusually, city workers are also removing the graffiti which has appeared on private buildings – due to the seriousness. Normally, the property owner is responsible for cleaning their buildings. 

The city’s security minister, Marie Barbey-Chpuis, says the City of Geneva will always standup against hatred and she praised the cleanup crews. 

The municipal police are increasing patrols and CCTV images will be used to track down the vandals.
