The foundation says extremists vandalized the cemetery on Sunday.
JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – Israeli extremists have vandalized a cemetery in the Palestinian village of al-Muzayria, in the district of Ramla in central Israel, whose Palestinian population were displaced in 1948, according to a Jerusalem-based organization.

The Al-Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage said in a statement Sunday that a team representing the foundation visited the cemetery to evaluate the damage.

Fifteen graves were vandalized, according to the foundation which explained that the graves were unearthed and their old gravestones were smashed.

Abdul-Majid Igbariyya, an Al-Aqsa official, says the Israeli authorities “are fully responsible for this ugly criminal act.”

“This is a chain in a series of organized criminal acts by extremist Jewish groups against Islamic holy places across the country,” he added. The foundation will repair the damage to restore the cemetery’s sanctity, he added. He noted that the concerned authorities would be notified.

The statement highlighted that the same cemetery had been vandalized several times.

An Israeli police spokesman did not immediately respond to inquiries late Sunday.

Very sad and distressing. Even the dead are not safe from desecration & vandalism from these Zionist extremist groups. They are the lowest of the low, words fail me.

So which brilliant defense will the Zionists pick for this? 'It didn't happen?' 'It's not that bad?' 'They did it too?' 'Worse happens elsewhere?'

Abe Foxman of the ADL or Simon Wiesenthall of the Wiesenthall Center only record "attacks" of vandalism on Jewish property only. When Jews do it , it is not on their radar and does not get recorded .
