Jewish Girl Assaulted in Antisemitic Attack in France

By Hamodia Staff

A 12-year-old girl was assaulted in an incident with antisemitic undertones over the past weekend, French newspaper Le Parisien reported Tuesday. Three teens, aged 12, 13, and 14, were apprehended on Monday and are set to be presented before juvenile judges for potential indictment.

The young girl, accompanied by her parents, filed a complaint at the Courbevoie police station (Hauts-de-Seine). She alleged that she was assaulted in an abandoned hangar where she was forcibly taken by the attackers after meeting them at a park. The suspects reportedly physically assaulted her and hurled insults related to her religious affiliation.

The victim’s religion appears to be a significant factor in the attack. Investigators discovered antisemitic remarks and images, including a burning Israeli flag, during their inquiry.

One of the suspects admitted to striking the young girl because she had made “objectionable remarks” about “Palestine.” The Nanterre prosecutor’s office confirmed to Le Parisien that the suspects would face charges of aggravated assault, threats of violence, and insults, all aggravated by the victim’s religious affiliation.
