Hamas officials called for an international “day of rage” on Friday. The attacks began early in the morning.
A Jewish teacher in France died after an asylum seeker reportedly shouted, “Allahu Akbar!” The attacker then went on a stabbing spree. Two other people, including a guard, suffered grave injuries. The attacker has been arrested.
The French authorities launched an anti-terror investigation after a knife attack in Arras, northeast France, left one person dead and two others severely injured.
A man with a knife, according to the local police, killed a teacher in a high school in a town of 41,000 residents on Friday morning. Two other people were also injured. The attacker was arrested.
As the day wears on, it is expected that “protests”, which are in support of Hamas, will spread throughout France. Violence is most likely to occur after sundown.
Another attack took place in Beijing, China. An Israeli diplomat was stabbed openly in broad daylight. The incident was captured on camera. A man is seen in the video approaching a diplomat holding a large knife. They then began to fight on the sidewalk, while the victim was repeatedly stabbed. Israel’s Foreign Ministry stated that his condition is stable. It’s not clear whether Chinese officials have arrested the attacker.
This violence is not likely to stop after these two events. France is a hotspot, but it’s not the only place where large pro-Hamas groups gather. The emotions are high and anti-Semitism is on full display. The work of law enforcement officials is not easy.
