French soldiers mowed down in attack

| August 9, 2017 | 17 Comments

A driver plowed his car into a group of French soldiers in Paris this morning, three of whom are seriously injured, according to Fox News.

The soldiers were part of the 35th infantry regiment in the suburb of Saint-Mande and were leaving their barracks just after 8 a.m. when the attack occurred. France’s Interior Minister Gerard Collomb told reporters the driver targeted the soldiers in a calculated car attack.

The driver escaped along with his car. The French law enforcement considers the attack to be a terrorist attack;

Defense Minister Florence Parly condemned the attack, calling it “a cowardly act with the utmost firmness.”

The service members were part of Opération Sentinelle, an anti-terrorism operation that was created after the 2015 Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris. The mission’s aim is to protect civilians.

Collomb said Wednesday’s car attack marks the sixth time soldiers with the Sentinelle operation have been targeted.

ADDED: Stars & Stripes reports that a person suspected to be the driver has been arrested;

Two officials said it is too early to say for certain that the man was the driver who rammed a car into soldiers in Levallois on Wednesday. Six soldiers were injured in the attack.

One of the officials said the arrest was violent, and police opened fire on the suspect. The other official said the arrest took place on the A16 highway when the man was stopped as police hunted for cars suspected of involvement in the attack.

    Levallois Mayor Patrick Balkany called it an “odious attack” and said it was “without a doubt deliberate.”

    “A BMW pre-positioned itself in the alley (where the barracks is located) and barreled into them,” he said on BFM television. He said the car “accelerated very quickly when they left” the building.

    (In other words, the Frogs are suggesting the BMW pre-positioned itself and is responsible for the attack, not the driver?).

    Too early?

    (I hope those injured recover quickly, and that swift justice is delivered for the driver)

    What the hell does that even mean? I know what it means when I have the “utmost firmness”….is Florence a trans?

    To bad terrorists in France don’t exclusively use long stashed away Jam-O-matic Chauchats.
    That would most likely result in the intended victims beating the fail-jihadis into a gooey red paste with their own jammed weapons
