Berlin synagogue targeted with Molotov cocktails in what Jewish group is calling a ‘terrorist attack’

A synagogue in Berlin has reportedly been targeted Wednesday by individuals who threw two Molotov cocktails at it in what a German Jewish group is calling a “terrorist attack.” 

The incident at the Kahal Adass Jisroel community drew a strong condemnation from German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, who said, “We will never accept when attacks are carried out against Jewish institutions.” 

“Unknown persons threw two Molotov cocktails from the street,” Kahal Adass Jisroel wrote on X.  

Police said they were investigating “an attempted serious arson” in which two people approached the synagogue by foot at 3:45 a.m. and threw two Molotov cocktails, which burst on the sidewalk next to the building. The two people, their faces covered, ran away. 

 

“I go to the synagogue since 2006, and… I always go with my kippah on,” he told the AP. “We felt until today very safe here. And never thought something like this could happen in this area. In the middle of Berlin.” 

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
