Man With Gun & Gas Canister Attempts To Break Into Moscow Shul


One person sustained gunshot wounds after an armed perpetrator, a 40 year-old-resident of the Moscow region town of Korolev, tried to break into the Moscow Choral Synagogue in central Moscow on Shabbos and threatened to set it on fire, reports.

As davening at the shul was ending, the attacker fired several shots at the shul’s guards from a non-lethal pistol and he was then arrested and brought to a police station along with the gun and a canister of gasoline that he was carrying.


One guard was hospitalized in critical condition. The attacker tried for several hours to get into the shul, saying that he wanted to see the rov.

The shul is the oldest in Moscow.
