Three men were arrested in England last week for posting anti-Semitic tweets after Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League game against West Ham United in October, Haaretz first reported.

The men, ages 22, 24 and 48, were held on suspicion of inciting racial hatred. Two of the suspects were arrested in London, and the other, in Wiltshire.

The investigation was prompted by complaints of tweets referring to Hitler and the gas chambers, Haaretz reported.

The Spurs traditionally have had a large Jewish following, often opening them up to anti-Semitic attacks.

All three men were released on bail until January while police continue the investigation, the report said.
