Kosher restaurant in Paris attacked


(JTA) — A kosher restaurant in northeastern Paris was fired on with an air gun.

Bullet holes were discovered Wednesday in the window of the Al Haeche kosher restaurant, located in the 19th district of northeastern Paris. The attack occurred Tuesday night, the JSSNews website reported.

The bullets were reportedly fired from an air gun, the same weapon believed to have been used Monday night to fire a bullet through the window of the David Ben Ichay Synagogue in Belleville, which is located less than a mile from the restaurant.

The Bureau for National Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism, or BNVCA, condemned the incident and described it as anti-Semitic because it was deliberately aimed at a kosher restaurant, according to JSSNews.

“Regardless of the projectile, stone, lead ball or ball, the BNVCA considers the incident criminal and anti-Jewish,” Sammy Ghozlan, president of BNVCA, told JSSNews.
