A potentially horrific attack on Jews was foiled by a brave guard who stopped an ax-swinging attacker.
Security footage from a harrowing attack in Ukraine surfaced on Tuesday, which showed an attacker waving an ax and wrestling with a guard at synagogue.
Times of Israel, which posted footage of the attack, reported that the man ran off and then “hurl[ed] feces at the building”
The rabbi and worshipers from the community were inside the synagogue at the time, the Times reported.
