Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu departed for Argentina Sunday night. Netanyahu will make history when he lands on Monday, becoming the first sitting Israeli prime minister to ever visit Latin America. He is expected to receive a warm welcome by Argentina’s President Mauricio Macri but it appears that some of the capital’s residents are unhappy about the Israeli leader visiting the country and thus decided to mark his visit by hanging up anti-Semitic posters in Buenos Aires.

Pro-Palestinian activists hung up the posters featuring a picture of Netanyahu under the word “wanted.” According to the signs, the prime minister “is wanted for crimes against human rights and the genocide of the Palestinian people.” In addition, posters of Netanyahu in the Nazi S S uniform appeared in the streets of the capital. “Zionists, leave Palestine. Netanyahu, leave,” read the signs.

Vice Chairman of the World Zionist Organization Yaakov Hagoel condemned the posters, saying that they demonstrate anti-Semitism and hatred toward Israel. He also promised that his organization will continue to fight such acts of anti-Semitism.

Prior to his departure, Netanyahu mentioned that at the end of his Latin America tour, he will head to New York for the UN General Assembly. While in the US, Netanyahu will meet with US President Donald Trump.
