Shots Fired at Jewish Owned Print Shop in Paris
Bullet holes were again discovered at a Jewish establishment in the Paris area marking the third such anti-Semitic incident in a week.
On Friday morning, the owner of a printing shop in the French capital's 19th arrondissement, found the holes at the entrance of his shop.
Bureau for National Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism (BNVCA), a watchdog on anti-Semitism, reported the latest incident on its website.
The shop's owner, identified by BNVCA as K, the last letter of his last name, informed them of the bullet holes after hearing reports of two similar incidents last week in Paris.
"After the attacks on Jewish schools and synagogues have turned them into fortresses, now Jewish businesses are targeted," wrote BNVCA founder Sammy Gholan.
On Monday night automatic gunfire was sprayed at the David Ben Ichay synagogue on Paris's 3 Danjon Street.
According to the French Jewish JSS News, the attack occurred around 9:30 p.m. The synagogue's rabbi and his assistant were present. Shots were fired at the glass window of the synagogue's office through which the rabbi or his assistant could be seen. Neither were hit.
Security cameras didn't give definitive information as to the identity of the assailants, but two people were seen in the area just minutes before the attack. Police are still searching for the pair.
The owner of the restaurant discovered a bullet hole in his window on Wednesday morning, around 7:00 a.m.
Damage was minimal and there were no injuries, noted JSSNews, but it was the same type of gun used in the earlier attack on the David Ben Ichay synagogue.
BNVCA also noted that the restaurant and the synagogue close proximity to each other - within one kilometer - and that the weapon used in both attacks was an air pistol.
According to BNVCA, the assailants who fired at the print shop may have targeted it because of the mezuzah affixed to its door.http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/189206
