Service de Protection de la Communauté Juive (CPCJ), the organization that works to protect French Jewish communities, has reported three violent anti-Semitic incidents in France since Oct. 5. Overall, the country has seen a 45 percent increase in anti-Semitic attacks in the first half of this year, according to CPCJ.

The group counted 386 incidents from Jan. 1 to Aug. 31 this year, 100 of which were violent. It released the report on the same day that French authorities discovered bomb-making materials and chemicals in a Paris garage while investigating an anti-Jewish Islamist network. This network may have been responsible for a September attack on a Jewish grocery in a Paris suburb, reported theJerusalem Post.
