Over 10,000 troops have been mobilised in France, following the reported shootings in the country.
The French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian announced that army troops will be deployed into the streets to secure “sensitive points”.
The soldiers will be deployed to protect Jewish sites, while the search for co-conspirators is still ongoing.
Defence minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian, said: “We have decided … to mobilise 10,000 men to protect sensitive sites in the whole country from tomorrow [Tuesday] evening,” he said after a national security crisis meeting.This is the first time that our troops have been mobilised to such an extent on our own soil.
“The threats remain and we have to protect ourselves from them. It is an internal operation that will mobilise almost as many men as we have in our overseas operations.”
Some 700 hundred police officers are being placed at 717 Jewish schools across the country, in addition to the 4,100 gendarmes already deployed.
