An Orthodox Jewish man was stabbed in the face by a pair of scissors by his co-worker last Thursday on August 11.

According to the local CTV News Montreal, an Orthodox Jewish man was stabbed in the face with a pair of scissors on Thursday, August 11, in Montreal, Canada.

The 24-year-old man was attacked outside of a kosher meat processing plant by a Lebanese immigrant coworker who was recently employed at the plant.

The victim survived and is in stable condition, but had a laceration on his right eye, for which he received stitches, claims

CTV News noted that the Jewish group B’nai Brith found that in 2021, Canada saw the highest number of antisemitic incidents since the group began tracking the data in 1982, reports The Jerusalem Post.

Montreal city councillor and director of B’nai Brith Canada Marvin Rotrand said that Canadian authorities must have a „better understanding” of antisemitism and that the country needs to pressure social media platforms to remove hateful content.
