(JNS) A kosher grocery store in a Paris suburb was destroyed in an arson attack on the third anniversary of the deadly Islamic terror attack on the French capital’s Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket. The attack on the store comes just a week after it and another kosher store were defaced with swastikas.

Israel’s Ambassador to France, Aliza Bin Noun, called the fire a “shameful provocation.” The owner of the grocery store, who is a Muslim, said he was sickened by the attack.

According to the French anti-Semitism watchdog BNVCA, the attack was intended to “punish” the Muslim owner for his links to the Jewish community.
