Three men have been arrested in France for attacking an 18-year-old Jewish man last week in a suburb outside Paris.

According to local media, the three shouted anti-Semitic slurs at the man and stole his phone.

Following the incident French Interior Minister Manuel Valls met with local Jewish leaders and condemned the attack. He told them France “will not tolerate anti-Semitic attacks.”

Several days ago an anti-Semitic gang attacked three young Jewish men with hammers and iron bars in the French city of Lyon. Two of the victims required hospital care.

In March, a Muslim gunman murdered a rabbi and three Jewish children at the Otzar HaTorah school in Toulouse.
