‘Brussels Shooting Was Premeditated’

Israeli President Shimon Peres spoke on Sunday with the head of the Jewish community of Belgium, Morris Sosnovsky, in light of the fatal shooting attack on Saturday at a Jewish museum in Brussels.

Their conversation touched upon the fact that the museum is the only Jewish site in the city not manned by security personnel as it is inside the same building as the Brussels Museum, and is not solely used by the Jewish community. Sosnovsky maintains that upon examining the crime scene, it is clear that “The attack was premeditated. It was not something that could have been improvised.”
