A Jewish school in Paris was evacuated on Thursday — three years to the day after the brutal massacre at a Jewish school in Toulouse, French news website JSS News reported. The evacuation follows disturbing instances of increased antisemitic violence throughout France and Europe.
Police searched the classrooms and common areas at the Ecole Alliance
Gustave Leven in the 16th arrondissement of Paris using bomb-sniffing
dogs. Though the report did not indicate whether the police found any
explosives, sources did tell JSS News that it was a fairly serious
One source told the website that the evacuation “was a source
of intense stress, especially on that terrible day of remembrance of the
massacre of the Jewish school in Toulouse.”
The evacuation at the French school occurred on the third anniversary
of the horrific killings in the southern French city of Toulouse, where
Islamic terrorist Mohammed Merah opened fire in the Ozar Hatorah
school, killing a teacher and three children.
According to reports,
Merah claimed to be an “Islamic warrior” and said that he was taking
revenge on behalf of Palestinian children. Merah died following a long
stand-off and shoot-out with French authorities. Merah’s terror spree
left seven dead in total.
Last week, numerous outlets revealed that the man and child featured in a chilling ISIS child terrorist video were possible relatives of Merah.
