Police in Washington state are searching for the suspects involved in vandalizing over 50 buildings with calls for a “ceasefire” and “free Palestine.”
According to a post on Facebook from the Edmonds Police Department, on Saturday morning, dozens of business owners in Edmonds reported being vandalized with calls to end the Israel-Hamas War painted in red on their windows.
“Overnight, multiple businesses downtown (several blocks near 5/Main) were tagged with posters and graffiti. The graffiti stated “free Palestine” or “cease fire”, police posted.
Police added that no threats were made to anyone or any groups.

Archer added that someone wrote “End the occupation” on her business window.
