Teenager Swore Allegiance To ISIS, Stabbed Jewish Man

Police in Zurich, Switzerland, have increased security at Jewish sites following an attempted murder that took place over the weekend.

A 15-year-old, who was not named, allegedly stabbed a 50-year-old Jewish man in the city on Saturday night.

Police said that while they had not reached any final conclusions about the attack, they believed that it was very likely an anti-Semitic hate crime.

The Swiss Organization of Jewish Communities said it was “deeply shocked that a community member fell victim to such an attack.”

“Physical attacks on Jewish people in Switzerland are very rare,” it said. “The Jewish community has been spared from such life-threatening attacks for the past two decades. However, there has been a significant increase in such physical attacks since Oct. 7.”

City Councilor Jehuda Spielman, who reportedly knows the victim, told The Jerusalem Post that bystanders who rushed in to stop the attack “without a doubt … saved his life.”
