( A third anti-Semitic attack over the course of about a week occurred in Paris. On Tuesday, six teenagers of African origin attacked a religious Jewish teenager with a taser gun at the Place de la République square, after which point they escaped the scene, reported the French-Jewish online magazine

The incident comes just days after two Jewish friends wearing yarmulkes were attacked in Sarcelles, a northern suburb of Paris, by three men seemingly of North African descent who sprayed the Jewish friends with tear gas. The attack was captured on video surveillance revealed Monday.

Two other Jewish teenagers last week reported being chased down the street by an axe-wielding assailant while they were on their way to the synagogue in Romainville, another Paris suburb, according to the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism.
