Trial Opens for 20 Accused in 2015 Paris Attacks

By September 7, 2021 Counter-Terrorism Division

According to the Associated Press, the trial of 20 men accused in a series of coordinated Paris attacks in 2015 that spread fear across Europe and transformed France opened Wednesday in a custom-built complex embedded within a 13th-century courthouse.

To refresh your memories, on January 7 and 9 respectively, 2015, Muslim jihadists’ attacked the editorial offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a Kosher supermarket in the French capital, Paris, killing 17 people and injuring scores of others. The assailants were consequently killed by French police.

Below is a video by our own Dr. Errol Southers who, you will see, did not mince words in assessing the threat ISIS poses. Dr. Southers said:

“It’s a war against a terrorist army as opposed to a terrorist organization. They are very organized, very sophisticated, and they are built for sustainability. We’ve already found out that if you take out a leader in a drone strike this afternoon, tomorrow he’ll already be replaced and not missed.”
