The message "Kill the Jews" was graffitied on the wall of a subway station in New York City, police said, after what appears to be a string of high-profile anti-Semitic incidents involving the city's mass transit system.

Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials received a report about the graffiti on Wednesday at the 34th Street-Herald Square station, police said, the New York Post reported.

By the time the New York City Police Department was informed about the crime on Friday, the graffiti reportedly had already been removed.

In another incident last week, National Review editor Philip Klein posted a picture on X, formerly Twitter, of the message "Fuck Israel," "Kill the Jews" and "Kike c****," scrawled inside a New York subway train.

NYCT Subway responded to Klein's message, "Yes, we were made aware of this and it is being cleaned as we speak."

Meanwhile, a man allegedly punched a woman in the face last week on the subway platform, telling her the reason he did it was because "you are Jewish." 

The attacks on Jews come after Hamas terrorists invaded Israel earlier this month, killing more than 1,400 people, including women, children and the elderly.
