Le Monde reports 2 suspects dead, 1 officer injured.


Reports of heavy gunfire, substantiated by several videos appearing on Twitter and a local reporter,  has woken residents in the northern Paris region of Saint-Denis. Beginning at around 430am local time, lasting around 15 minutes, Le Parisien reporter Jean Gabriel Bontinck assumed the shooting was part of an ongoing police raid. Police are telling residents to stay indoors.



French police earlier said that video footage of the Paris attacks reveals the presence of a ninth, previously unnoticed, jihadi, who could still be at large.


The video shows the new suspect in a black Seat car with two other attackers, opening fire with assault rifles through its window at customers at a bar in central Paris. The car was later found abandoned in Paris suburb of Montreuil, with three AK-47 rifles in it.

As France's RTL reports,

A shootout at Saint-Denis began around 4:25 in Saint-Denis as part of an anti-terrorist police operation near the Stade de France.


A witness heard a "big boom" and "exchange of fire that lasted a dozen minutes." A security perimeter has been deployed in the surroundings of the place Jean-Jaurès.


The Anti-Terrorism Sub-Directorate of the Judicial Police intervened assisted the police intervention Raid, a source close to the investigation.


This is the ninth man wanted Friday's attacks that is targeted and is entrenched in a building with accomplices, according to Jean-Alphonse Richard RTL police-justice service. The assault is underway with very large police resources are there, there are policemen injured. 


The police were conducting searches in the area of Saint-Denis. The security forces have been received by several shots. They identified the address of a base for terrorists.

As CBS12 reports,

 There are multiple reports of heavy gunfire and possible explosions in the Saint-Denis area of Paris, CNN affiliate BFMTV is reporting.


Swarms of police have an area of Saint-Denis blocked off and residents are being told to stay inside.


French journalists are reporting this may be connected to a police raid in search of wanted fugitive in connection to the Paris attacks.


CNN and AFP are reporting officers have been shot.


The gunfire erupted around 4:30 a.m.

The Guardian adds, What we know so far...

“Heavy gunfire” has been reported in St Denis, a northern Paris suburb. St Denis is where the Stade de France, one of the targets of Friday’s attacks, is located.

Shooting took place during a police operation reported to be linked to the search for the so-called “ninth attacker” – believed to be on the run.

Some local media reports that a number of police officers have been injured in the operation; this has not been confirmed.

Roads have been closed off and the police operation appears to be ongoing, with large numbers of police officers and police vehicles in the area.

Look at 2nd vid from bottom - Female Kahl.

Shows what looks like a person casually firing a shot gun without really aiming.

Doesn't look real.

watching this live after daylight it's odd to me that, considering this is the same Arab neighborhood where the residents were rioting in the streets, and that this is the alleged home of adherents to Sharia Law, that there would be a huge EXOTIC CENTER sign next door?

Too funny, the place is permanently closed, but the sign still hangs there like a sour thumb...

Love that first pic of that bldg, Office de Tourism, FU France, you have turned your lovely country and culture into SHIT/MERDE by letting in these goat herders.  Might as well be Detroit with that office.  Nobody will come to see your jihad crime infested shithole.  Your ancestors gave their lives to keep those scum out.


Arab and Berber Islamic forces had conquered Spain (711), crossed the Pyrenees (720), seized a major dependency of the Visigoths (721-725),[7] and after intermittent challenges, under Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi, Governor-General of al-Andalus, advanced toward Gaul and on Tours, "the holy town of Gaul"; in October 732, the army of the Umayyad Caliphate led by Al Ghafiqi met Frankish and Burgundian forces under Charles in an area between the cities of Tours and Poitiers (modern north-central France[8]), leading to a decisive, historically important Frankish victory known as the Battle of Tours (or ma'arakat Balâ? ash-Shuhadâ, Battle of the Palace of Martyrs), ending the "last of the great Arab invasions of France," a military victory termed "brilliant" on the part of Charles

Now your two crypto Zionists, Sarkozy and Hollande (and their financial backers Rothschilds and Soros and all the other Zion banking families), have opened the city gates/country gates to these schmucks once again (they used to do it in Spain all the time during the Arab invasion, open those city gates at night).  SOme things never change, Zionists banking families must be getting big time money and concessions from the UAE and Saudi Arabia to help this next Arab invasion, just like in the old days)

How many hundreds of billions if not trillions of dollars of Gulf state money is sloshing through your Zion private bank accounts to buy your media controlled outlets and politicians to enable this second invasion you scums.

The Inquisition was to drive out these traitors from Christian cities but we eventually let them back in and here we are again, rinse and repeat, rehash of the millions of Christian lives lost to the muslim terror in the past and now again.  Yet it has all become about them and not the Christian Victims whose blood is on their hands back then and NOW.  As a reward for opening the city gates these schmucks were then allowed to be the moneychangers of the caliphates.  Some things never change.

For the western europeans, moving to east Europe and Russia may be the only countries left where the white races may still form a majority.  Personally, if I were a young european, I just might consider becoming a russian citizen and taking advantage of the 1 hectare of free land given to anyone willing to work it.

Albert Speer, Hitler's Armaments Minister, described how Hitler expressed approval of Islam, saying that Hitler had been particularly impressed by what he had heard from a delegation of Arabs. When the Muslims had tried to penetrate Central Europe in the 8th century, they had been driven back at the Battle of Tours; if they had won that battle, the world would have become Muslim. Theirs was a religion, Hitler said, that believed in spreading the faith by the sword and subjugating all nations to that faith. Hitler considered that Islam was perfectly suited to the "Germanic" temperament and would have been more compatible to the Germans than Christianity

Ah, the 'ol French surrender jokes !

These old English racist jokes have been revivified since 2003 by the hate of american warmongers against France, and this hate still persists even in ZH.

All this ugly disdain and nasty jokes come from the firm refusal of the French to join America in Irak, in 2003.

Since France refused to go to Iraq, American warmongers and neo-cons made French army look like cowards – as a punishment.

But History has proved the French were right, and that the WMD were only a dirty trick to serve as a pretext.

Nevertheless, the hate of American warmongers against France remains still there, well alive, even in ZH.

This stale hate still shows through "innocent good jokes" about the “surrender monkeys” and their white flags

As for the rest, the French can be proud of their Military History:

According to the British historian Niall Ferguson, since 387 BC, France has fought 168 major wars against such badasses as the Roman Empire, the British Army and the Turkish forces. Their track record isn't too shabby, either: They've won 109, lost 49 and drawn 10 times.

This makes France the most successful military power in European history - in terms of number of fought and won …

The French have succeeded to conquer and guard the largest country in Europe.

Good post.

But that’s sadly not the only NEO-CON propaganda strain alive and well on ZH – look how they have convinced many otherwise informed people that USA is a communist/socialist country (or moving in that direction). Even though USA is basically owned by capitalists – maybe not the ‘the mom n’ dad’ small business-owner capitalist glorified by the ideologues of capitalism (those small business’ will – if successful – over time become the conglomerates we see controlling the world today). Monopoly capitalists and fascists (capitalists using the state to further their goals) are still capitalists. The definition of a capitalist being as simple as someone who owns and live by his/her capital (=not his/her work). A bank-owner is a financial capitalist in this way.

Actually it has more to do with France's pushing the US into Vietnam, but sure go ahead and rewrite history for us, it's not like that isn't what we are actually fighting here, rather than evil republicans.

@NisStyles "Actually it has more to do with France's pushing the US into Vietnam"

Go ahead and rewrite history !

In fact, the Americans didn't save the French in Vietnam. The Americans just thought they could move in and take this part of the French colonial empire that the French could no longer maintain to add to the American colonies in southeast Asia.

The French lost Dien Bien Phu because they were screwed by NATO (ie. the US).In 1954 they had to specialize in jets while others in Europe had to specialize in bombers.

And when it came to fight Communism (the Viet Cong, massively helped by Soviet Union and China's troops) ... guess what... the US refused the NATO to get involved.

The French had to fight the war without bombers, as in 1954 they had very few of these kind of planes.

When the French were finally defeated in Dien Bien Phu, they had 50,000 troops in all Vietnam, and their biggest planes were Douglas A26 and C47’s, and Vought Corsairs.

When the US was defeated by the same enemy some twenty years later, they had 550,000 troops, B52’s, napalm, missiles, big helicopters, the works …

How did we create terrorists where there were none?

Well remember those US troops driving along the streets of Iraq throwing water bottles and little kids began chasing and they teased them and were howling at the thirsty children? How old are those kids now?....hmmm...2004...11 yrs ago and the kids running behind the troops were about 8 yrs old. That would make them 19 yrs old, sure they haven't forgotten.


The_Prisoner's picture

to the junker, watch this video and tell me the cops with rifles and smg's aren't firing blanks.

The "suspect" charges out, fall only after hitting glass door and get put down by point blank pistol shots fired from guys on right. 



BarkingCat's picture

Obviously you do not know how firearms work.
They are not shooting blanks. If they were their weapons would not cycle. Those dual action semi autos would become single action and not also would not feed the next round without racking the slide (on the pistols).
I can see a pretty good muzzle flash so they do not have blank adapters mounted.
Only possibility would be that these are prop gun designed specifically to fire blanks ...or special barrels
for firing blanks. I don't even know if such a thing exists but if the barrel had only s small passage it would create enough back pressure to cycle the weapon and also present a muzzle flash.
It is possible but very unlikely.

Also you can see the bullets ripping boxes and shit inside the store apart. People need to remember that if you shoot someone, they don't die instantly most of the time. 

back to basics's picture

Explain then bright eyes how the cop who crosses right in front of live fire @ the 24 second mark of the video posted (is this standard training?) doesn't get ripped to shreds.

It's all fucking fake again. The place inside would be ripped to shreds with these many rounds thrown at it, not just a couple of pieces of paper falling over. And yes, way too much smoke and too little recoil to be live rounds.

And some mastermind, deciding to exit from precisely the same spot as the bulk of the shots were coming. I also like the dead body strategically placed to be in view as soon as the store shutter went up.

Overall, a better production than the Charlie Hebdo video but FAKE FAKE FAKE
