Israeli police say they are investigating hate graffiti scrawled in Arabic on a synagogue in northern Israel.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says the phrase "there is no God but Allah" was sprayed on the outside of the synagogue in Moshav Maor. The graffiti was discovered on Friday morning. He says police are searching for suspects.

The vandalism comes days after a mosque in the West Bank was torched and vandalized with Hebrew-language graffiti protesting the Israeli government's upcoming evacuation of a Jewish outpost in the area.

Israel's Supreme Court has ordered the July evacuation of the Ulpana outpost built on privately owned Palestinian land.

Radical settlers have previously attacked Palestinian mosques to protest the Israeli government's settlement policies.
