Two Jewish teenagers reported that they were sprayed with tear gas in an attack in Sarcelles, a northern suburb of Paris.

The teens, who were wearing kippot, said they were attacked on Saturday night, according to a report posted Monday on the website of the National Bureau of Vigilance against Anti-Semitism, or BNVCA.

The attack, which was captured by a nearby security system, reportedly was perpetrated by a group of youths ages eight to 17, of “North African origin,” according to the BNVCA.

The attack comes less than a week after two Jewish teenagers told police they were chased on Shavuot eve by a hatchet-wielding man and three others in Romainville, a northeastern suburb of Paris.

Last month, BNVCA and SPCJ, the watchdog of France’s Jewish communities, documented two suspected anti-Semitic beatings of Jews in the Paris suburb of Creteil. Also last month, police received a report about three men who were filming the entrance to the local Jewish school of Creteil, Otzar Hatora.

  1. It's escalating and still being shrugged off in the US. Perhaps the Mossad should take a stroll through the Paris streets wearing kippot… self defense is still legal in France, isn't it?
