France steps up security around synagogues and Jewish schools

France will step up security around Jewish schools and synagogues, partly as a response to the current Middle East crisis between Israel and Iran, Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin says on social media platform X.

“As Passover approaches and given the current international situation, I have told local officials to significantly step up security at places visited by our Jewish compatriots, especially with regards to synagogues and Jewish schools,” he writes.
