About 20 gravestones in a cemetery in southern France were vandalized with swastikas and the words “Death to Jews” and “Death to the French”, JTA reported on Wednesday.

The graffiti was discovered in the Gruissan municipal cemetery in the Aude region on Sunday, according to the report.

The gravestones appear to have been chosen at random and were not broken or toppled, France 3 television reported.

The cemetery has been closed to the public. No suspects have been identified in the attack.

The National Bureau for Vigilance Against Antisemitism (BNVCA) condemned the desecration of the cemetery, noting in a statement that the town of Gruissan is “usually rather calm, rather peaceful, and this aggression surprises and scandalizes us.”
