A 57 year old school teacher wearing a jewish Kippa was stabbed as she was returning home on Thursday in the French city of Marseille.
As she was walking through the streets three men on scooters, one of them wearing ISIS t-shirts stopped and harassed her, showing her a cell phone picture of French Islamic terrorist Mohamed Merah, who killed 7 people in southern France back in 2012.
Brice Robin who is the prosecutor for Marseille said:
“The three people insulted, threatened and then stabbed their victim in the arm and leg. They were interrupted by the arrival of a car and fled.”
The woman thankfully escaped severe injury and the suspects are still at large. This comes weeks after a Rabbi was stabbed in the region.
