Shots fired at two Jewish schools in Canada

Update : 10 Nov 2023, 10:37

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau condemned antisemitism on Thursday after shots were fired at two Jewish schools in Montreal. There were no injuries, according to police.

Trudeau said "violence, hate, antisemitism, Islamophobia and scenes such as the ones we saw in Concordia University or shots fired at Jewish schools overnight" are all "unacceptable."

The shooting incidents at the two schools follow a violent altercation at Concordia University between people aligned with opposing sides in the conflict. 

"I know emotions are high, and people are scared. But attacking each other is not who we are as Canadians," Trudeau said during a visit to Montreal.

"If anywhere in the world is going to start building the kinds of understandings that we're going to need to see peaceful resolution in the Middle East... it starts in a place like Canada."
