Antisemitic symbols were spray-painted along with the numbers “911” in nine different locations on Jewish shops, on bus stops and other venues around Hampstead in London this weekend.

Jewish shop owners – including Oddbins and Esclot London, as well as a former café and a phone booth – and other addresses in Hampstead and Belsize Park, such as a synagogue wall, were among those who locales were affected by the attacks.

The graffiti comprised a red Magen David (Star of David) and a reference to the 9/11 Al Qaeda attacks on the United States that is believed to be a reference to a conspiracy theory claiming Israel was behind the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

Metropolitan Police Inspector Kev Kailes said in a statement, “This is clearly a concerning incident and one we are taking seriously. We have liaised with our partners in order to remove the graffiti and various inquiries are underway to find out who is responsible.

“Officers will be on patrol throughout the area in order to provide some reassurance to local communities. Please approach us if you have any questions or concerns. I ask anyone who might have seen anything suspicious last night to call us and aid the investigation.”
