A Jewish cemetery in the northern Danish city of Aalborg was vandalized over the weekend, the Ekstra Bladet newspaper reported.

In the incident, two dolls splashed with red paint were left next to a wall of the burial ground. Leaflets were also scattered nearby that described the Passover holiday as a “Jewish celebration of carnage.”

Anti-Semitic leaflets are seen scattered at the vandalized Jewish cemetery in Aalborg, Denmark.

The leaflets included a link to a neo-Nazi website called “Nordfront” that promotes the Nordic Resistance Movement.

One of the leaflets found at a vandalized Jewish cemetery in Aalborg, Denmark.

A local police official said an investigation was underway and that no suspects had been arrested yet.

The Israeli Embassy in Denmark tweeted, “Horrified by anti-Semitic act against the Jewish cemetery in Denmark during the holiday of Passover and Pesach. We have full confidence in Danish authorities to deal with this swiftly to protect its Jewish citizens.”

In October, two men were found guilty of vandalizing a Jewish cemetery the previous year in the nearby city of Randers.

In that incident, 84 tombstones were painted over, six were overturned, and one had a Star of David and the word “Jude” scrawled on it.
