Israeli World Heritage site vandalized

Vandals have caused irreversible damage to Avdat, an ancient Nabatean city that dates back to the 3rd century B.C.

The vandals sprayed black and yellow graffiti, destroyed signs, tipped over ancient stone pillars and destroyed a 1,700-year-old marble altar, spokesman Omri Gal said.

Police are currently investigating the incident, Gal said. The vandals could have entered the site any time during the night since it is open and unfenced, he said.

“We don’t know when they came, but they did a lot of damage in a very short time,” he said.
