The Jewish Agency for Israel’s Facebook page was inundated with hundreds of explicitly anti-Israel and anti-Semitic messages.

The attacks earlier this month were confirmed by the Jewish Agency on Thursday.

The messages were deleted soon after they were discovered, according to the Jewish Agency.

The attack of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic messages coincided with the anniversary of the Yom Kippur War, which began on Oct. 6, 1973. Many of the message writers were Egyptian, according to the Jewish Agency.

The messages included swastikas, violent imagery, and anti-Semitic messages in Arabic, English and poor Hebrew. One message read: “WE ARE COMING FOR U … JUST WAIT THE EGYPTIAN HOLOCAUST COMING VERY SOOOOOON.” Another read: “May Allah help the Mujahideen in Palestine kill and destroy you nations, your people, your army.” Some of the messages referred to the war as an Egyptian “victory.”
