The crisis in the Middle East may have triggered anti-Semitic vandalism in Miami this week.
On Monday, police discovered spray-painted swastikas and the word "Hamas" on the pillars of Congregation Torah Ve'emunah, a synagogue in northeast Miami-Dade.
Also, a Jewish family in largely Jewish neighborhood in Miami Beach found their two cars vandalized with the words "Hamas" and "Jew" written on the windows. They made the discovery as they left to attend a service at their synagogue Saturday.
The vehicles were also covered with eggs and smeared with cream cheese.
Authorities are trying to identify who was behind the crimes. At this point, they say it is not clear whether the two crimes are connected.
Miami-Dade Police are investigating both vandalism incidents.
