WATCH: 'This is peaceful - go away!' Australian police to investigate men videoed disrupting vigil for Israeli missing on Bondi Beach

Australian Police are alleged to be investigating two men recorded destroying a tribute to missing Israelis on Bondi Beach.

In a video published to social media by the Australian Jewish Association, two men are seen removing posters intended to draw attention to Israelis still held in Hamas captivity.

The posters had been displayed on railings along the beachfront with blue and white towels and flip-flops representing each hostage.

It has been alleged that the vandals deliberately chose to attack the display during a vigil held by Sydney's Jewish community on Bondi Beach.

The video has surfaced amid alarming reports of a global rise in antisemitic incidents since the Hamas raid on Israel on October 7.

In the recording, a woman can be heard confronting the two men.

She shouts: "This has nothing to do with you. You bring your flags and posters and everything. Why don't you go over there [to Israel]?

"Please go away."

To this, one of the men retorts: "Why bring this stuff [the posters]? We don't need to bring this violent shit."

New South Wales Premier Chris Minns described the incident as “very concerning,” the Sydney Morning Herald reported on Tuesday.

The military wing of Hamas, the Qassam Brigades, said through its spokesperson Abu Obeida that 200 to 250 Israelis were kidnapped on October 7.

Many similar confrontations have been recorded across the world over posters commemorating the Israeli missing.

At the onset of the conflict, two women were recorded in north London removing posters displayed by the local Jewish community while exclaiming, "this is for Palestine!"

Another man in England's capital was seen drawing Hitler moustaches beneath images of kidnapped Israeli children.

Antisemitic incidents in the UK have reportedly more than quadrupled since Hamas's attack on Israel, according to the Community Security Trust (CST).
