Paris Attacks: 2 Dead, 7 Detained In French Police Raid Against Paris Attackers — But Is The Mastermind Still At Large??

police raid 2 dead paris attackers

On Wednesday, two terror suspects were declared dead with seven others being detained in custody after an intense shootout in the Parisian suburb of Saint-Denis. Whoa.

The security operation was in response to the deadly attacks in the City of Lights that shook the world last week. It’s reported the operation was meant to target the ringleaders of the terrorism strike — specifically Abdelhamid Abaaoud and Salah Abdeslam.

The French police concentrated their mission in one particular residence building in the suburb where the targets had barricaded themselves. 15 residents, including women and children, were evacuated prior to the cops flooding the small town with heavy backup.

According to sources, one woman who was suspected by the authorities ended her life by blowing herself up via suicide belt.

In fact, the town’s residents were certainly not far from the terrifying action.

One source noted:

“We could see the bullets. We could feel the building shaking.”

Yikes! We can only imagine how terrified these poor locals feel.

Another insider shared:

“When you think of Saint-Denis, you don’t think of terrorists. I’m shocked! Why would the terrorists pick this neighborhood?”

Still, the identities of the deceased and detained suspects have yet to be confirmed — especially since it’s also reported that one of the accused is STILL at large. So scary!

The Belgian ISIS member, Abaaoud, has yet to be officially confirmed as part of the roundup in Saint-Denis.

Luckily, only 5 French officers were lightly injured during the raid. Though, we’re saddened to say that a police dog lost its life during the intense shootout.

To make matters worse, on Tuesday evening, two flights from El Lay to Paris were diverted after someone phoned in an anonymous bomb threat regarding the Air France flights. How awful!

Nonetheless, government officials believe the calls were simply “hoaxes” but are still looking into tracing the location where the threats were made.

We’ll be keeping our eyes on the look out for any updates regarding this raid. Stay tuned.
