A 79-year-old woman was seriously injured on Tuesday when she was hit in the head by a metal object thrown at her as she exited a synagogue in Paris.

The woman was taken to a hospital, where she was in stable, non-life threatening condition on Wednesday.

As of press time, it was not known who hurled the object — a steel Pétanque ball — or from where.

The incident took place in the French capital’s 11th arrondissement, the site of two brutal antisemitic murders of French Jewish women, Sarah Halimi and Mireille Knoll, since 2017.

Union of French Jewish Students (UEJF) President Sacha Ghozlan said in a statement on Wednesday, “Even if for the time being there is no confirmation of an antisemitic motive, attacks on Jews, especially elderly women of Jewish faith, in this popular district of eastern Paris, bring back painful memories. That is why we are asking investigators to quickly shed light on this assault, determine its causes and act accordingly.”
