The FBI is helping investigate yet another act of vandalism directed at Jewish people.

The latest investigation involves a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia, where an estimated 75 to 100 headstones were toppled Saturday night, CNN reports. 

Police have yet to find a motive for the vandalism at Mount Carmel Cemetery.

“The Philadelphia FBI Field Office, the Civil Rights Division, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania have opened a civil rights investigation into vandalism at the Mount Carmel Cemetery,” the FBI office in Philadelphia said in an email. “The FBI will collect all available facts and evidence.”

In recent weeks, dozens of Jewish community centers across the country have been the targets of bomb threats.

“I’m a child of a Holocaust survivor, so I grew up with stories of destruction of Jewish cemeteries,” said Rebecka Hess, who helped clean up the cemetery. “I always thought we were done with that.”

The gang of students showed up to Waterfront Park on March 22 to fight another local gang, Trill Young Savages, or TYS, according to an FBI memo.

“TYS members apparently didn’t show, which is when the ‘mob violence’ ensued,” the agent wrote.

The teens committed at least 20 robberies assaults and acts of vandalism.

Two months’ worth of broken windows in the churches are considered violations of “civil rights” since the crimes occurred on “religious real property,” Special agent Richard Lambert told WBIR.
