Graffiti that said "no to the Zionists, not to Israel" was painted in a synagogue in western France.

The vandalism was discovered on Saturday in the main Jewish house of worship in the coastal city of Le Havre, 100 miles northwest of Paris, stickers were also included with Palestinian, Lebanese and French flags at the entrance of the building.

In 2016, bullet holes were found in the mailbox of the same synagogue, the National Office of Surveillance Against Antisemitism, or BNVCA, said in a statement Tuesday. BNVCA asked the authorities, who do not have any suspects in custody in any of the incidents, to "do everything in their power" to bring the perpetrators to justice

"The anti-Zionist rhetoric directed at Israel that it is placed in a synagogue confirms that the Zionists are notoriously anti-Semitic, "BNVCA wrote.

In 2014, at least nine Jewish houses of worship were attacked, some with firebombs, amid riots throughout France over Israel's war on Hamas in Gaza.
