The Bataclan Theater, the site of one of the several coordinated terror attacks Friday night in Paris, was owned by a Jewish family until two months ago and had previously been threatened by Islamic terrorists, the Times of Israel reported.
Th French magazine Le Point reported today that the theater was targeted for many years by anti-Zionist groups because its now-previous owners often hosted pro-Israel events there.
An Army of Islam member reportedly told French security services in 2011 that the Bataclan Theater was a target for the group.
“We had planned an attack against the Bataclan because its owners are Jews,” the Army of Islam member reportedly said.
The theater’s former owners told Israel’s Channel 2 that they sold the theater in September 2015 and moved to Israel. One of the former owners was called by a current theater staff member during the terror attack, and heard gunshots and screaming.
Almost 100 people were massacred at the theater during Friday night’s attack.
