German security officials say the number of anti-Semitic and anti-foreigner incidents rose in the country last year، despite an overall fall in politically motivated crimes، as the Times of Israel said.

Anti-Semitic incidents rose 19.6 percent to 1،799 — 89.1% of those involving far-right perpetrators. Xenophobic incidents rose 19.7% to 7،701 amid an overall uptick in hate crimes to 8،113 from 7،913.

Interior Minister Horst Seehofer says politically motivated crime overall was down 8.7% in 2018 to 36،062 incidents، praising the trend but saying the figures are still too high
