French president Francois Hollande and French prime minister Bernard Cazeneuve have joined the security council on Friday morning at Elysée, hours after another ISIS claimed attack has hit Paris.

“As a result of the terrorist attack that took place last night in Paris, the president attended a Defense Council,” said Cazeneuve. “A ‘peacekeeper’ officer died and a police officer is seriously injured although his life is not in danger”.

Cazeneuve added on behalf of the Security council that the French government’s thoughts are with the families as well as to the relatives, expressing solidarity of the entire nation.”Obscurantism and intolerance must be fought”

“It’s Europe that is being targeted because it brings together the ideals of peace,” added Cazeneuve, suggesting that the government will keep the security forces mobilized, to allow the security of the French citizens.

Specialized response units are on alert to ensure a total responsiveness that has shown its effectiveness,” said the prime minister. “Nothing should impede this fundamental democratic moment for our country. I call on the responsibility and dignity”.
