A 12-year-old Jewish schoolboy was punched in the back of the head by a gang who called him a ‘dirty little Jew’. The incident took place near the Ozar Hatorah school attended by the boy in southeastern Paris and is the latest in a string of anti-Semitic attacks to hit France.

The police guarding the school allegedly did not see the assault taking place, and the schoolboy reportedly did not suffer serious injuries.

Jean-Paul Amoyelle, head of the Ozar Hatorah network of Jewish schools in France, said he feared further attacks after this incident.

He added: “There was a feeling of solidarity for our schools after this drama [in Toulouse]. Now I fear that this has provoked a hostile reaction, shown by the attitude of these boys who called him dirty Jew and beat him up. We have to be vigilant, because this could lead to more aggression.”
