Exclamation Off-Duty Soldier Stabbed in France by ISIS Sympathists

Off-Duty Soldier Stabbed in France by ISIS Sympathists
A FRENCH soldier is fighting for his life in hospital after reportedly being stabbed by two men who yelled that the attack was in revenge for the bombing campaign against Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria.

The trooper, from the 8th regiment of marine parachutists, is said to be “seriously injured” in hospital after being set upon whilst out jogging alone near his army base.

The alleged attack took place at around 8.40pm yesterday evening in the southern town of Saint Julien du Puy, which lies around 70 miles to the east of Toulouse.

Reports in French media stated that the 30-year-old sergeant said he was punched and slashed several times with a knife, sustaining a serious wound to his thigh.

The soldier has reportedly told police that the men shouted at him that the attack was in revenge for France's airstrikes against ISIS in Syria.

Passers-by who discovered the stricken sergeant then called the emergency services, who rushed him to hospital in a "serious condition".

It is believed that he was not on duty at the time, but was still wearing some of his military uniform.

Police are today hunting the two alleged knifemen, who are still on the run.

France is part of the US-led coalition, including Britain, which is carrying out airstrikes against terror group ISIS - also known as Daesh - in Syria and Iraq.

The country has been on a high state of alert since jihadi maniacs slaughtered 130 innocent people on the streets of Paris last November in a series of gun and bomb attacks.
O Israel
The LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.
