The beis hachaim located in Pryluky, Ukraine was targeted in an anti-Semitic attack. Damage to the cemetery and the matzeivos is reportedly extensive. According to a HaMevaser report, the attack occurred last week. 17 matzeivos were totally destroyed by the vandals.
Passersby saw the extensive damage and they contacted leaders of the local Jewish community. The tombstones were smashed and spray painted and portions of the stones were thrown outside the beis hachaim. Some of the tombstones were totally uprooted from their place and officials do not know how to find their original place.
Local police were summoned. An investigation is reportedly taking place but to date, no arrests have been reported.
