More than 100 graves were defaced with swastikas and other anti-Semitic graffiti at a Jewish cemetery in France this week, according to new reports.

The government’s regional authority told Agence France-Presse it is investigating damage to 107 graves at a Westhoffen cemetery, about 15 miles west of Strasbourg.

Vandals left the spray-painted symbol on most of the cemetery’s graves, Maurice Dahan, president of the Jewish consistory for the Bas-Rhin region, told AFP.

“It’s a shock,” Dahan said.

The number “14” was also used, a reference to a popular white supremacist slogan, according to the BBC.

Just hours earlier, about 12 miles away in the village of Schaffhouse-sur-Zorn, anti-Jewish inscriptions were also discovered.

“Jews are and make France,” French President Emmanuel Macron said in a statement posted to Twitter, translated by the BBC. “Those who attack them, even in their graves, are not worthy of the idea we have of France. Anti-Semitism is a crime and we will fight it, in Westhoffen as everywhere, until our dead can sleep in peace.”

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe expressed “revolt and disgust” at the vandalism.

“The perpetrators of these acts must be found and punished,” he tweeted, according to the BBC’s translation.

The Alsace region been the target of numerous anti-Semitic attacks over the past year — most notably a February incident in which 96 tombs at a Quatzenheim cemetery were vandalized with swastikas and other anti-Jewish graffiti.

A French TV channel was forced to cut short a live Facebook broadcast about the desecration because of an onslaught of anti-Semitic commentary.
