BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian village in northern Israel was targeted by racist graffiti and vandalism on Tuesday morning, according to Israeli media sources.

The phrase "Stop assimilation, Arabs get out" was found written in Hebrew on a wall in Akbara village near Safed, according to Ynet.

Police also found 10 cars with punctured tires in the village, presumably linked to the graffiti. Police said they would launch an investigation.

The vandalism follows a similar attack in Baqa al-Gharbiya, another Palestinian village in northern Israel on Sunday.

In that attack, phrases like "Muhammad is a pig" and "terror stones" were sprayed on the side of a mosque.

Although the majority of Palestinians were expelled from their homes inside Israel during the 1948 conflict that led to the creation of the State of Israel, some Palestinians managed to remain in their villages and their descendants today make up around 20% of Israel's population.
