Antisemitic Mob Storms Airport in Russia’s Dagestan Region Seeking Israeli Passengers 

HeadlineOct 31, 2023

In Russia’s North Caucasus region, a mob of hundreds of young men stormed the runway of an airport in Dagestan Sunday evening, appearing to search for Jewish passengers on a flight from Israel. Police say they arrested 60 of the rioters. The founder of Telegram said after the attack the social media platform had shut down the accounts that organized the mob. Dagestan’s governor condemned the attack, writing on Telegram, “There is no honor in hurling abuse at strangers, searching their pockets looking for their passports!” On Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin blamed Western spy agencies and agents of Ukraine for the riot. The White House dismissed the claim and condemned Putin for not doing more to denounce the violence.
