Shots fired at Jewish-owned print shop in Paris


(JTA) — For the third time in a week, bullet holes were discovered at a Jewish establishment in the Paris area.

The latest incident was discovered on Friday by the owner of a printing shop in the French capital’s 19th arrondissement, the BNVCA watchdog on anti-Semitism reported on its website.

“After the attacks opon Jewish schools and synagogues have turned them into fortresses, now Jewish businesses are targeted,” wrote BNVCA founder Sammy Gholan.

The shop’s  owner, identified by BNVCA by the last letter of his last name, K, reported the holes he found at the entrance to his shop to the BNVCA after hearing reports of two similar incidents this week in Paris.

On Dec. 24, a bullet was fired at a synagogue. The following day, unidentified individuals shot an air gun at a kosher restaurant.

According to BNVCA, the assailants who fired at the print shop may have targeted it for the mezuzah affixed to its entrance.
