Nice,

July 14, 2016,

14 july, Frances holiday and national day of the Bastille marked the day of a huge tragedy.
A man later identified as a 32 year old Tunesian originated Frenchman, used a truck as a weapon to kill and injure many people.
With his truck he drove through a barricade hitting people who just watched the fireworks.
Many victims under the children from the childrens hospital located at the opposite side of the street who were watching the fireworks.
The man was able to drive unmolested for 2 km's.
During his ride he killed 84 people and hurt over 200, many seriously.
Finally policemen shot him dead.

The terrorist had a history of violence and was recently divorced of his wife.
Inside the truck police found fake weapons.
IS claimed responsibility for the attack however, there are no connections found.
Another sad day for France and Nice in particular.
Our thoughts are with the victims and there loved ones!

Garde-Colombe,

19-07-16

Today a 46 year old woman and her 3 daughters were attacked by a 37 year old moslim.
The woman and two of here daughters were seriously injured and flown to hospital by a helicopter.
All were staying in a holidaypark at Laragne in the France Alpes.
The perp fled after his cowardly act but was caught by alarmed police very fast.
According to him the 4 were to "naked" by the extrememist islamic standards of the terrorist.
Do we have a problem, yes. Unfortunately the government doesnt see it the way we do on the street.

Valence,

January 2016.

29-year old Frenchman of Tunisian descent rammed over a civilian and a guard in an entrance of a mosque in Valence, Drôme, reportedly while chanting Allahu Akbar (Allah is the greatest). He then put his car into reverse to try to ram the soldiers again who fired warning shots and then fired to disable the driver. The driver said he wanted to kill troops because "troops killed people" and that he wanted to be killed by the troops.

Paris,

On 7 January 2016 in Paris, a man wearing a fake explosive belt attacked police officers with a meat cleaver while shouting "Allahu Akbar!" He was shot and killed by officers when he failed to obey an order to stop.
The attempted attack took place on the one-year anniversary of the 2015 Hebdo shootings.
The failed attack occurred in the Goutte d'Or district where the population is predominantly of north African and sub-Saharan African origin. The perp named Belgacem shouted "Allahu Akbar" and pulled out a meat cleaver as he approached a guard at the local police station. He was shot and killed when he ignored orders to halt. His pocket contained a written rambling statement that included a drawing of an ISIS flag, and his pledge of allegiance to the caliphate.
Tarek Belgacem was identified by police in North Rhine-Westphalia as the attacker.
He was a Tunisian immigrant who moved to Europe via Romania in 2011. Initially, it was known that Belgacem had used at least seven aliases. It was later determined that he had a total of 20 identities in seven different countries.
He had been posing as an asylum-seeker from Iraq or Syria, and was living in a center for asylum-seekers in Recklinghausen, Germany, since August 2015.
By 11 January, it was reported the suspect had surfaced in Germany in 2013 after living in France for five years.
Police found an Arabic banner reading "Islamic State forever" on the wall of a communal kitchen in the center.
At the site of the attack, Paris police officers found "a piece of paper on the man's body with the Muslim profession of faith, a drawing of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) flag and a pledge of allegiance to the extremist group's leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi". The suspect was also carrying a cellphone with a German SIM card.

Marseille,

A 15-year old Turkish boy attempted to decapitate a teacher from a Jewish school in Marseilles with a machete.

Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray

26-07-16,

A Priest, (Father Jacques Hamel, believed to be 86) has been cowardly beheaded and another hostage is ‘fighting for his/her life’ after two knife-wielding terrorists took two nuns and several worshippers hostage at a church in northern France.
They were at a Catholic mass at 9am in the French town of Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, near Rouen
On of the nuns managed to escape and warned police.
Quickley after arrival a special police unit killed two bearded men responsible for the hostage.
A third suspect has reportedly been arrested outside the church.
Local media claims Father Jacques Hamel, believed to be 86-years-old, was the priest slaughtered by the duo as A’maq news agency, which is connected to ISIS, has officially reported that “two soldiers of the Islamic State” carried out the savage attack.
According to security sources, one of the attackers was a convicted ‘electronic tag wearing’ terrorist living with his parents.
Supporters of the depraved death cult are celebrating the horrific attack at the church which was reportedly on a terrorist ‘hit list’ which it is claimed French police have known about since April 2015 – following the arrest of an extremist in Paris last year.
Again a cowardly attack against, when will our politicians wake up to see the danger they brought to us?


Father Jacques Hamel

Orly airport,

Two soldiers patrolling Orly airport in Paris have shot a man dead after he tackled their female colleague to the floor and tried to take her weapon, according to French Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian.
He tackled the woman and was able to grabb her gun, he used her as a shield. When he rose up a little the other soldiers got a chance to shoot him.
The man, a known criminal named Zyian Belgacem, had earlier in the day opened fire on a police officer during an identity check in the northern Paris suburb of Garges-les-Gonesse, according to Interior Minister Bruno Le Roux. He was stopped by an officer for traffic violations. At some point he unarmed the policeman and shot him. The officer was only slightly injured.
Then, Paris police said, he stole a woman's car at gunpoint. It was found near Orly.
Police did not immediately provide a motive or identify the attacker, though the Paris prosecutor's office said he was 39 and had a record of robbery and drug offenses.
The office said he did not appear in a French government database of people considered potential threats to national security.
The prosecutor's office said its anti-terrorism division was handling the investigation and had taken the attacker's father and brother into custody for questioning.
Francois Hollande, the French president, praised the courage and efficiency of troops and police following Saturday's incidents.
In a written statement, Hollande reaffirmed the state's "determination to act without respite to fight terrorism, defend our compatriots' security and ensure the protection of the territory".

Reuters, Paris,

French prosecutors launched a terrorism investigation after a man wielding a knife and shouting the Arabic phrase "Allahu Akbar" (God is great), tried to force his way in to the Eiffel Tower in Paris on Saturday night, a judicial source said.
The incident at the world-famous tourist landmark was designated a terrorism case because of the suspect's statements to police, in which he said he wanted to attack a soldier, and his apparent radicalization, the source said.
No one was injured in the incident that occurred around 11.30 p.m. (2130 GMT) on Saturday shortly before closing time, Eiffel Tower operator SETE said in a statement on Sunday.
The man, brandishing a knife, tried to force his way through a security check before being stopped, it said. Police evacuated the tower to carry out a check of the entire site.
A source close to the investigation said the suspect, a French national born in Mauritania in 1998, had been in a psychiatric hospital for several months and was granted permission to leave care from Aug. 4 to Aug. 6.
During police questioning, the man said he had wanted to carry out an attack against a soldier and had been in contact with a member of Islamic State who had encouraged him to act, the source said.
The suspect was convicted last December for defending acts of terrorism and for making death threats, the source said. He was given a four-month suspended sentence.
France has been under state of emergency legislation since November 2015 Islamist attacks in which 130 people were killed in and around Paris. Its interior minister said in a newspaper interview published on Sunday that the threat of militant attacks was "very high".
After pushing his way past a security guard at the entrance to the Eiffel Tower, the man approached soldiers patrolling at the site and, holding a blade, shouted 'Allahu Akbar', the source said.
But he complied when the soldiers told him to put down his weapon and offered no resistance when arrested, the source added.
Security forces have been targeted in several incidents this year, including two on the Champs-Elysees avenue and one outside Notre Dame Cathedral, also renowned tourist sites.
Militant attacks in France led to a drop in visitor numbers last year but activity has recovered in 2017.

French police hunting a driver who rammed a car into a group of soldiers in Paris early Wednesday morning have shot, wounded and arrested a man on a highway north of the city.
A Lille policeman was injured by stray gunfire during the arrest.
The man, who was unarmed and hit with five bullets while attempting to evade police on the A16 motorway, is in a serious condition.
He was arrested between Boulogne-sur-Mer and Calais.

The suspect, born in 1980, reportedly drove his vehicle into a police car before being arrested.
Prime Minister Edouard Philippe confirmed that the person arrested is the same man who carried out the attack.
France's counter-terror unit is investigating the attack, in a suburb of northwest Paris, which left six soldiers injured, three seriously, according to Paris police.
The soldiers' injuries are not life-threatening.
Police had been searching for a BMW car and its driver who rammed into a group of soldiers outside a barracks at the Place de Verdun in Levallois-Perret around 8 a.m. local time.
Minister of the Interior Gerard Collomb said the attack was a "deliberate act."
"The car accelerated towards the soldiers for five meters in order to hit them," he told reporters. "We do not believe this could be an accident."
The mayor of Levallois-Perret, Patrick Balkany, told BFMTV that the car was "pre-positioned" in a small alleyway, waiting for troops from the 35th Infantry Regiment to come out of the building.
The group of soldiers is part of France's Operation Sentinel, set up in the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo terror attack in January 2015.
