Paris, France is yet again the location of a Muslim terrorist attack. This time, members of the military were targeted, with six French soldiers being mowed down by a speeding vehicle.
The incident occurred at 8:00 am Paris time. The soldiers hit were part of Opération Sentinelle that works for France’s State of emergency, which was brought in following the November 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris.
After the car rammed the soldiers near their barracks outside Paris, the vehicle sped off, leading to a shootout with police. The local mayor says it was "without a doubt a deliberate act". The vehicle in question accelerated as it neared the troops.
The suspected terror attack is the latest in a string of assaults that have hit France since January 2015, claiming more than 230 lives.
While ISIS claims responsibility, and claims they have been targeting France as a result of the country's participation in the US-led international coalition fighting the jihadist group, with French jets carrying out air strikes in Syria, the reality is, Islamic terror has risen in France for one reason, and one reason alone.... the increase of the Muslim population in the country - a number that is rapidly approaching 10% of the overall population.
The terrorist who committed this latest act is a Muslim man in his late thirties.
French officials said the six soldiers hurt in the attack notably suffered injuries to the face, knees, hands and arms, but there are currently no fatalities.
London also had an incident, where a Muslim moped gang hit a German tourist as the assailants fled from police.
