France Continues To Be In ISIS Crosshairs

OpsLens Video

Two years after militants killed 130 people in coordinated attacks across Paris, French officials say the county faces an unprecedented “internal” threat from battle-hardened ISIS fighters coming back to France.

Although the Islamic State has lost tremendous ground in Iraq and Syria, officials fear hundreds of French citizens could launch local attacks in the name of the terrorist organization — leaving authorities unsure of how to contain the threat.

French President Emmanuel Macron will pay tribute on Monday to the victims of the mass shootings and suicide bombing that occurred across Paris and in the city’s northern suburbs on Nov. 13, 2015.

The deadliest attacks on French soil since World War II prompted the country to join international military operations against ISIS and other terrorist groups in Iraq, Syria and elsewhere.
