Rockville, MD - Israelis in Washington, DC Come Under Racial Attack

Rockville, MD - Unidentified assailants spray-painted swastikas around a neighborhood in a suburb of Washington, DC where many Israelis live.

The incident in Rockville, Maryland was described by police as a racially-motivated hate crime targeting the large number of Israeli Jews that live in the area.

Earlier this summer, Israeli children living in the neighborhood were physically attacked in what was also described as an anti-Semitic assault.

The Israelis living in Rockville have requested increased security as a result of the attacks.
