Here's coverage from the Guardian. It was a big story that was widely covered so it shouldn't be hard to find another source if you want one.

I understand the concern about their sale but the conclusion that they aren't reliable isn't supported by evidence as far I can tell. Per the included link in the post, they haven't failed a fact check in the last 5 years -- and they were sold to Axel Springer in late 2021. MBFC has reviewed them multiple times since the acquisition. Politico, also acquired by Axel Springer, was rated "Leans Left" in blind bias reviews by AllSides both before and after the acquisition, so it doesn't appear to have changed their editorial bias much either. I can't find any evidence of a shift rightward or away from factual reporting.

It has more to do with them being identified and fleeing the country:

Holocaust memorial had recorded two figures arriving at about 3am with spray paint and stencils, as well as two or three other people who may have been involved. They were reportedly quickly identified from mobile phone information.

All were Bulgarian and left Paris by coach for Brussels later the same morning just after spray-painting the graffiti, France Info reported, confirming an earlier report in the satirical weekly Canard Enchaîné.

And the similarity to a previous incident:

In October, about 60 Stars of David were discovered on walls in Paris and districts on the outskirts. All were in a blue similar to the blue of the Israeli national flag.

A Moldovan couple were arrested in that case and their alleged handler, a pro-Russian Moldovan businessman, was identified, according to Agence France-Presse.
