Several high school students in Kfar Saba hung offensive welcome signs for their 10th-grade female classmates, as Israel still gushes over the rape of a teenager in the southern resort town of Eilat.
The school principal prevented the new students from hanging the signs.
Meanwhile, anonymous perpetrators sprayed the phrase "there's no freshman who doesn’t give, there's no senior who doesn't get" on the school walls.
The Kfar Saba Municipality harshly condemned the act.
"We've found out about the signage prior to the opening of the school year and before it was hung, the issue was handled by the school principal immediately and assertively," a statement read. "The students responsible for the signage were given a suspension."
Kfar Saba Mayor Rafi Sa'ar arrived at the school where the signs were hung and spoke to students.
"I felt it was important to come personally to you students and look you in the eyes and say that I firmly condemn such behavior," Sa'ar said. "It is despicable behavior, thoughtless behavior."
The Southern District Prosecution in Be'er Sheva has indicted eleven men last Wednesday for their alleged involvement in the gang rape of a 16-year-old in the southern resort town of Eilat earlier August.
Four of the suspects face charges of rape and the rest were hit with charges of indecent assault, abetting a rape, criminal conspiracy and failure to prevent a crime.
