Employees who arrived at the Hamat Tiberias National Park Tuesday
morning were shocked to find that ancient artifacts had been damaged
overnight. Unknown vandals have caused extensive damage to the park.
Among other things, the vandals smashed and spray painted over mosaic
inscriptions in the ancient synagogue at the site.
Shaul Goldstein, who heads the Nature and Parks Authority, said
Tuesday morning: "We view the event very gravely and will work to
bring the perpetrators to justice. These are centuries-old assets of
culture and heritage."
