IDF soldiers leave racist graffiti on Gaza homes
01.28.2009 | Ynet
Gaza residents returning to their homes in Zeitun neighborhood find their houses covered with slogans such as ‘Death to Arabs,’ and ‘One down, 999,999 to go.’ IDF: Those responsible will be reprimanded
A painful reminder for Operation Cast Lead remained evident in Gaza in the form of blatant, racist graffiti left on houses’ walls by IDF soldiers.
Some of the graffiti was written on the ruins of the homes of the al-Samuni family, who lost dozens of its members during the war.
An IDF spokesman said in response to the report: “This is not how IDF soldiers are educated. This goes against the IDF’s ethical code. The matter is being investigated and those responsible for it will be severely reprimanded.”
