A kindergarten teacher has been stabbed in the neck at a school in Paris by a man allegedly claiming to be acting in the name of ISIS.
The 40-year-old teacher was preparing for one of his classes when he was attacked by a masked man armed with a box cutter and scissors, according to Europe1.
The attacker allegedly claimed he was acting in the name of the brutal jihadi group ISIS and declared the attack was ‘a warning’. He fled the scene in Aubervilliers, Seine-Saint-Denis.
The ISIS French-language magazine Dar-al-Islam called in its November edition for its followers to kill teachers in the French education system.
Teachers were described in one ISIS magazine article as ‘enemies of Allah’ for teaching secularism and ‘in open war against the Muslim family.’
UPDATE: Turns out it’s a hoax. The teacher stabbed himself and made the whole thing up.
