In yet another possible copycat attack against Parisian Jews, unknown assailants fired a pellet gun at a kosher restaurant on Friday, according to the French-Jewish JSS News site.

There were no injuries and only slight damage to the window of Micky’s Kosher restaurant, located in the city’s heavily-Jewish 19th Arrondissement.

However, over a month of assaults against Jewish targets, including a brutal rape during a home invasion in December, and similar shooting attacks against a synagogue and other Jewish businesses, have prompted Chief Rabbi of Paris, Michel Guggenheim, to admit that the near-constant harassment is having “a powerful effect on the community.”

The attacks, which have taken place alongside a wave of stabbing and vehicular terror attacks by radical Muslims in several cities in France, have shocked many in the nearly 500,000-strong community, although Guggenheim added that, “Paris police are taking very severe measures against the phenomena, and, of course, we have no complaints against the security forces.”
