Two Jewish Sisters Said Missing Following Bastille Day Terror Attack
JNS.org – Two elderly Jewish sisters were among the missing following the Bastille Day terror attack in France that killed 84 people, according Magen David Adom representative in Nice, France Bruno Israel Lellouche.
Lellouche, who was out to dinner with his wife on the evening of the attack, said that the siblings have reportedly not made contact with family members since the attack, the Jerusalem Post reported.
Niddam Maurice, President of the Jewish Community in Nice, confirmed that there was an investigation into the whereabouts of the sisters.
“We know at this time that two women have not been found. It is very difficult at the moment to say anything. We had a young woman and a young man who were missing earlier and then were found,” Maurice told the Jerusalem Post.
“For the moment what we know is that no Jews have died.”
Meanwhile, Israeli Army Radio reported that no Israelis were killed or injured in the attack. However, Army Radio added that five members of the Jewish community in Nice were injured.
