Murder of Aharon Zindani in Yemen (2012)

1 Jew was killed in an antisemitic attack in Yemen on 5/22/2012

The killing of Aharon Zindani in Yemen underscored the volatile political climate and heightened threats to the Jewish community in the region.

The murder of Aharon Zindani, a 50-year-old member of Yemen's Jewish community, was a shocking event that underscored the dangers faced by Jews in Yemen. Zindani was attacked in a market in Sanaa by a Muslim man accusing him of witchcraft. Despite being taken to a hospital, Zindani succumbed to his injuries. This tragic incident reflects the volatile political climate in Yemen and the heightened threats to religious minorities, especially Jews, who have a longstanding but now dwindling presence in the country.
