Police are appealing for information from the public after anti-Israel graffiti was daubed on a war memorial in South London.

The graffiti was discovered on the memorial, on Lewisham High Street, after Remembrance Sunday.


It has since been removed by the local authority.

Detective Chief Superintendent Gareth Rees, head of operations in the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command, said: “We continue to make arrests as part of our ongoing investigations into real-world and online offending linked to the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas.

“We are clear that where we identify anyone involved with or committing potential terrorism offences, then they will be investigated, and we will take the necessary action.”

Among the arrests made by the force include that of a 21-year-old man in Brixton Hill on Friday on suspicion of spraying pro-Palestinian graffiti on the shutters of a shop, and a 22-year-old man on Wednesday on suspicion of making threats to kill while shouting antisemitic slurs in Stamford Hill.
