Israel’s embassy in Finland has been vandalized by neo-Nazi extremists about 15 times in the last 18 months. The glass door of the Helsinki embassy was broken and photos of swastikas and Adolf Hitler were hung at the entrance of the building.
In a statement, the Israeli Foreign Ministry described the attack as “a new link in the chain of anti-Semitic attacks on the embassy.”
“The Israeli embassy in Helsinki has expressed its deep dissatisfaction with the Finnish authorities and urged them to act relentlessly to identify the culprits, bring them to justice and prevent such incidents from happening again,” the statement said.
However, senior Finnish officials have expressed concern over the attacks, but have yet to take concrete action against the perpetrators.
