Anti-Semitic graffiti was found at a home in Uccle, the second such incident in the Brussels municipality in the last four months.
Unknown persons spray painted the word “Juif” (Jew) on a wall in front of a house on the Avenue des Ormeaux and the names of the residents were covered with paint.
Local police confirmed that an investigation has been opened.

On 21 December last year, unknown persons also painted “Juif = Nazi” (Jew = Nazi) on the road surface of Avenue Château de Walzin in Uccle. It is possible the same perpetrators are involved.
“In any case, the spelling is similar,” said police spokesperson Laurent Masset.
“But it is not clear if certain persons are targeted. We are conducting a neighbourhood search and checking the images from the surveillance cameras. It is likely that the perpetrators live in the area.”
