A synagogue in Tel Aviv's Shapira neighborhood was vandalized with swastikas overnight Wednesday.
Parishioners who arrived at the synagogue Thursday morning were shocked to find two swastikas drawn on its front door with a blue pen and called the police.
Israel Police said in a statement that it had launched an investigation into the incident and investigators collected forensic evidence from the scene in order to catch the perpetrators.
The incident is the latest in a spat of recent anti-Semitic events targeting Jewish houses of prayer across Israel.
Earlier in August, swastikas were tagged on the walls of two synagogues in the Haredi city of Bnei Brak.
Photos of teenager Shira Banki, who was murdered by an ultra-Orthodox Jewish man during the Jerusalem Gay Pride Parade in 2015, were placed outside the entrance to one of the synagogues.
The incident was widely condemned, with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett calling it "a serious act of hatred and incitement."
