1  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Terrorism & Counterterrorism / Re: France terror attacks on: 26 April 2021, 17:31:50

French prosecutors opened a terror inquiry Friday after a police employee was stabbed to death at a station southwest of Paris by a suspected Islamist extremist from Tunisia. The man was then shot dead by other officers.
Three people have been detained in connection with the attack.
Meanwhile in an official reaction president Macron said France would never give in to "Islamist terrorism" after the attack in Rambouillet, a tranquil commuter town about 60 kilometres (40 miles) from Paris, which revived the trauma of a spate of deadly attacks last year.
France's national anti-terrorism prosecutors said they had opened a terror investigation, also involving the DGSI domestic intelligence service, into the murder of a person holding public authority. Three people from the suspect's "entourage" were detained on Friday, according to a judicial source.
A source close to the inquiry told the attacker shouted the wellknown and infamous "Allahu Akbar" during the attack.
Chief anti-terror prosecutor Jean-François Ricard, who spoke outside the station along with Prime Minister Jean Castex, confirmed that "comments made by the assailant" indicated a terror motive, without giving further details.

'By her side'

The attack took place in the secure entrance area of the station at around 2:20pm (1220 GMT), a police source added.
The 49-year-old woman, an administrative assistant and mother of two who was returning from a lunch break, was stabbed in the throat twice and died of her wounds shortly afterwards.
The attacker, 36, was fatally wounded when an officer opened fire on him.
He arrived in France illegally in 2009 but had since obtained residency papers, a police source said, adding that he was unknown to security services. He had just moved to Rambouillet.
About 30 police officers wearing balaclavas raided the suspect's home in Rambouillet on Friday evening, AFP reporters at the scene said.
Police also searched the home of the person who sheltered the assailant when he first arrived in France, sources close to the inquiry said.
Macron vowed on Twitter that "in our fight against Islamist terrorism, we will never give in," identifying the murdered woman as Stéphanie.
"The nation is by the side of her family, her colleagues and security forces," he said.
Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin, who also visited officers in Rambouillet, said security would be stepped up at stations nationwide.

Vienna,

In the towncentre was an attack against near the Synagoge.
At least 1 attacker shot at people randomly, 17 were wounded 4 people died from their wounds.
The attacker a 20 year old Macedonian was allready convicted before.
Het got out of jail after 4 months (of his 2 year sentence) by fooling a commission that had to judge aboiut his motives and if he was "cured".
It proves again that jail time does not work against terrorists.
A police officer is among the seriously wounded.
The attacker was killed, 14 people were arrested arrested and investigations are going on.
More and more details leaking to the press.
Of the 14 arrested 7 have been jailed for terrorist activities. Again this proves putting them in jail does not work!
The attacker tried to buy ammo in Slavakia, the Austrian security services were warned about it, nobody acted.

Avignon,

Police officers shot an armed man in Avignon.

The man, shouting Allah Akbar, threatened people on the street with some kind of weapon.
Because the French police is on high alert since the latest paris attacks, officers were quickley at the scene.
Refusing to obey the police the man was shot to dead.

And...again did the religion of peace hit the news.

This time a teachters throath was slit by an 18 year old Tjetsjen boy, after his attack he was shot by the police.
Several familymembers have been arrested.

France has a history of violence between Tjetschen immigrants and other groups culminating in violent riots last summer in Lyon.

Paris,
2 people (journalists) were seriously, after a knife attack.
The attacker who used a machette went on the run but was caught shortly after by the police and is now in custody.
According to French media the victims worked for a press agency next to the Charlie Hebdo site.
          
The French police assumed this is a terrorist attack and investigations are underway.
Untill now 7 people have been arrested.
New details have been given to the press.
The attacker was a 25 year old Pakistani. He claimed to be 18, this meant that he was 22 when he entered France. 
He came to the country as an asylum seaker lying about his age.     
He also had plans to set the building on fire because he was upset by replacing the cartoons about Mohamed. However the idiot was not aware  Charlie Hebdo moved to another location.
Again this shows the system is not working, the government should in fact protect us from these sort of terrorists. Insted we bring them here.....
Another great example of people who come here to "flee" from harsh conditions trying to enforce their ideas to us.

With the fear of Corona going away people go out on the street again, as do our terrorists.....

Reading stabbing:

Three people were killed and at least three others sustained serious injuries in a series of stabbings in Forbury Gardens in Reading town centre at 7pm on Saturday evening.
There were several witnesses to the attacks, which took place as people were relaxing in the park, and disturbing videos have emerged on social media showing scenes of victims receiving resuscitation treatment.
Khairi Saadallah, a 25-year-old Libyan national, was initially arrested on suspicion of murder, but he has now been rearrested under section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000, giving police greater powers of detention.
Counter-terrorism Policing South East have taken over the investigation from Thames Valley police after the attack was declared a suspected terrorist incident.
Saadallah was on the radar of the security services in the middle of last year, sources have told the Guardian. The intelligence agencies believe Saadallah had mental health problems, the sources said.
Security sources said Saadallah had been granted asylum and had previously been in prison for a relatively minor offence, not a terrorism conviction.
The first named victim has been identified as James Furlong. He was in his mid-30s and was head of history, government and politics at the Holt school in Wokingham.
Furlong was described as a “kind and gentle man” who had a “real sense of duty and cared for each and every one of our students”.
Counter-terrorism officers were seen among a group of officers entering a block of flats in Reading, where the suspect is understood to have been living, at about 11pm on Saturday.
The prime minister, Boris Johnson, chaired a meeting at 9am on Sunday in No 10 to be updated on the latest developments. The home secretary, Priti Patel, was present, as well as police and security officials.

Johnson later said he would make changes to the legal system to prevent other attacks from happening if “there are lessons to be learned”.
The head of counter-terrorism policing, Metropolitan police assistant commissioner Neil Basu, has said there is nothing to suggest anyone else was involved and police are not currently seeking anyone else as part of the investigation.

One of the patients admitted to Royal Berkshire hospital has been discharged while another remains in a stable condition under observation, a spokeswoman has said.

France, Romans sur Isere,

2 people killed, 7 inured 2 of them severe, attacked by another follower of the religion of "peace".
This goes on even in times of trouble!

The attack started in the towns centre. The first victim was a man, his throat cut while his wife and child were watching!
After that the coward entered a tobacco store, a butchery and a supermarket where he cut multiple victims before the police could stop him.

The town lays in the south of France close to Lyon.
The coward responsible is assumed to be 32 years old and came from Sudan.
He shouted the well known Allah Akbar and asked for the police to shoot him, instead he was arrested Bedroefd

Gelsenkirchen,

Police shot and killed a man with a knife.
The man, a Turkish criminal, with a long history of violent crimes assaulted a policecar with a stick.
When the officers came closer to arrest him he threatened the officers with a knife.
During the assault he jelled Allah Akbar.
The officers were than forced to shoot the man.

Paris subburb,

In a park at Villejuif a man (Nathan C. 22) stabbed several civilians.
2 of them are seriously wounded, 1 of the victims died of his wounds.
The attacker was swiftly identified and shot to dead by police officers.
Allthough at first the police spoke about a 'mentally disturbed' person they now say it was a terror attack.
After searching his house they found a plan for the attack, and many items that belong to islam.
Witnesses also claimed the man shouted Allah Akbar.

My thoughts go out to the victims.

And it happened again..... another attack in London.
Today a man stabbed several pedestrians on London bridge, 2 of them died 3 people are wounded.
Police shot the men who was carrying a knife and wearing a suicide explosive vest.
Several people filmed the incident.
On one of the movies its visible that a group of 10 people tackles the stabber and tried to hold him down, a man is seen walking away with the attackers knive.
Few seconds later police arrived and killed the stabber out of fear he might set of the vest, a vest which appeared to be fake.
The stabber was a 28 year male from Stefforshire named Usman Khan who was just released from prison.
He was sentenced to 16 years in jail in 2013 because his involvement in planning an attack on the stock exchange.
His release was "automatic"  according to a policespokesman.

It proves again that shooting these cowards is the best option, the wont "heal" from time in prison.
Well done London police!
