Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is condemning two Anti-Semitic incidents in Montreal after two Jewish schools were struck overnight by bullets.
“This hate doesn’t have its place here in Montreal, or anywhere in Quebec or anywhere in Canada,” Trudeau told reporters during a news conference Thursday.
Montreal police say staff members discovered bullet holes on the outside of the two schools when they arrived in the morning.
Const. Jean-Pierre Brabant said no injuries were reported and that both incidents took place at night when the buildings were empty.
No arrests have been made but security perimeters were set up at both schools.
Quebec Premier François Legault told reporters at the same news conference that what happened to the two schools cannot be tolerated.
The latest incident comes after police officers were called to Concordia University on Wednesday afternoon. Three people were injured and one person was arrested after several violent incidents tied to the Israel-Hamas conflict.
