Six people were killed and 22 injured in the 9th August assault on Chez Jo Goldenberg, located in la rue des Rosiers.

The attack in Paris’ Le Marais district first saw a grenade tossed into the bustling restaurant at around 13:10 local time.

Two men then entered the establishment in this popular and largely Jewish neighbourhood in central Paris (parts of the 3e and 4e arrondissements), firing machine guns at the some 50 people inside.

Using what were believed to be WZ-63 Polish-made machine guns, the three assailants opened fire on passers-by trying to escape from the scene.

The attack has been blamed on what is commonly known as the Abu Nidal Organisation (ANO).

It was a militant Palestinian splinter group named Fatah – The Revolutionary Council, which was founded by Sabri Khalil al-Banna, known as Abu Nidal, in 1974.

The group is now defunct; Nidal is believed to have died in a shooting at his Baghdad apartment in August 2002.

France’s RTL reports international warrants for the arrest of three suspects have been issued.

They are a 56-year-old Norwegian national living in Oslo, a man in his 60s living in Jordan, with the third, also in his 60s, residing in Samaria, according to magazine Paris Match.

“The Police Security Service is currently unaware of these warrants,” Martin Bernsen, senior PST advisor, tells The Foreigner.
