Secretive Jewish Sect Flee North Macedonian Town, Fearing Attacks

North Macedonia’s police said it had dispatched patrols to keep an eye on the premises of an undisclosed hotel in Skopje where the group of 38 members of a little-known ultra-conservative Jewish sect called Lev Tahor was admitted on Tuesday.

Patrols were being sent “for their own safety”, police told BIRN, confirming that they had also escorted them from Kumanovo, saying the group has the phone number of the police if they feel threatened.

“We remind once more that these persons respect the laws of North Macedonia, have a legal right to stay here and are here temporarily. The group does not pose any danger, so we appeal once more for tolerance and solidarity towards them,” police noted.
