Christians in Switzerland were prevented from attending Christmas mass at Our Lady of Longeborgne, Brumous by knife-wielding Muslims.
Three people were wounded by the jihadi attackers, whose identities have not yet been released to the public.
During the holiday season, there have been numerous jihadi style attacks. The Islamic State released a holiday attack list of thousands of churches in the United States and encouraged jihadis to carry out knife attacks during the holiday season in the West.
Last week, a jihadi drove a truck into a Christmas market killing 12 and injuring nearly 50 people.

Christians were attacked with cold steel — always the weapon of Islam — for going to Mass this Sunday morning at Our Lady of Longeborgne, Brumous.
On the social networks, eyewitness reports speak of a knife attack against three faithful of the Hermitage of Longeborgne — one of which was seriously wounded — who were on their way there.
One of them succeeded in crossing the roadblock made by the aggressors, and arrived in Longeborgne with his face covered in blood. He was taken to the hospital as soon as the police arrived. According to the priest, his condition was not worrisome, but another victim was reportedly found by the policemen on the ground and seriously wounded.
“There was no mass, for the faithful were stopped by a person who assaulted them. It was probably a sharp weapon,” said Father Francis, the rector of the Hermitage. One of the wounded was able to reach the holy place and was treated on the spot before being transported by the emergency services. Three people, two women and one man, were stabbed. The latter was seriously injured.
