Shots were fired at two Jewish religious schools in Montreal overnight Wednesday into Thursday, but no injuries were reported, police said.

Bullet marks were found on the doors of two Jewish educational institutions in the city of Montreal on Thursday morning, police said.

The shots were reportedly fired in the middle of the night when the schools were empty and therefore did not cause any injuries, authorities said.

“I want to be very clear. We condemn this anti-Semitic violence in the strongest terms,” ​​Prime Minister Justin Trudeau responded after speaking of an “appalling” rise in anti-Semitism and Islamophobia amid the conflict between Israel and Hamas.

Quebec Premier Francois Legault issued an “appeal for calm to all Quebecers,” condemning the action as well as a violent confrontation that took place Wednesday at a Montreal university.

Two groups of students, one claiming to be pro-Israel and the other pro-Palestinian, clashed at Concordia University, injuring three people, according to the university and the police who had to intervene.

One person was arrested for assault.

Swastikas and an incitement to hate posted online were also reported by the school, which said there had been a “worrying increase in acts of bullying” in recent days.

The premier of Quebec “also called on the police forces” to try to calm the social climate and did not rule out the possibility of banning the gatherings taking place on the fringes of the war in the Middle East.

Earlier this week, Montreal police announced they had launched an investigation after a Molotov cocktail attack at a synagogue in the Quebec metropolis.

These actions are part of a resurgence of anti-Semitic acts that have been recorded, mainly in Europe, since the start of the war between Israel and Hamas on October 7.
