Bullet holes were discovered Friday in the window of a Jewish-owned publishing house in Paris' 19th arrondissement.

Initial reports suggested that the bullet holes were caused by an air gun, much like preceding events at a synagogue on Monday and a kosher restaurant on Wednesday.

According to local media, police were looking into the attack on the Jewish storefront, the third of its kind in recent days.

The Representative Council of French Jewish Institutions, an umbrella organization of local Jewish organizations issued a statement expressing concern on behalf of the Jewish community and calling for a "swift" investigation.



On Wednesday, the window of the Al Haeche kosher restaurant located in the 19th district of northeastern Paris just a mile away from the synagogue that was shot at a day prior, was found with bullet holes, reportedly fired from an air gun.
