A Jewish teacher was savagely beaten by a group of Arab men in a brutal anti-Semitic attack in Paris, according to the Bureau for National Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism (BNVCA).

The attackers - who shouted "death to the Jews" and "filthy Jew" during the assault - broke the victim's nose and drew a swastika on his chest after tearing open his shirt.

"One of the perpetrators opened the victim's shirt and with a black marker drew a swastika on the man's bare chest," BNVCA president Sammy Ghozlan wrote in the BNVCA report, according to JTA.

The victim - identified only as K. Richard - told police the men had cursed him in Arabic and French, and appeared to have been of North African descent.

He was ambushed after leaving a kosher restaurant and was wearing a kippa (skullcap) at the time of the assault.

Anti-Semitism in France has hit headlines in recent years and has seen a marked increase, with the majority of attacks being blamed on extremists from the country's sizable Muslim community.

Earlier this year, thousands of supporters of anti-Semitic comedian Dieudonne chanted hate slogans including "Jews out of France!" in a rally in central Paris.
