Guest of the show Quelle Epoch, on Saturday September 9 on France 2, the Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, raised the possibility of a resurgence of attacks in France, coming from abroad, like those of November 13, 2015. The tenant of Place Beauvau mentions as a possible reason the lesser presence of “Americans, French, in the Sahel, in the Levant and in Afghanistan”.
Reviewing the various terrorist threats that France faces, the Minister of the Interior referred to "the projected threats". These are attack plans designed abroad and implemented by teams sent to France. “The projected threat: the Bataclan. We thought for a very long time that this could no longer happen. What is happening in Afghanistan, in the Levant, in Africa, is replenishing money, means to make a projected threat. That’s what we’re worried about,” he said.
However, according to him, the main terrorist threat is endogenous, that is to say coming from a radicalized person carrying out the act alone. " It's very difficult. We thwart an attack every two months in France," he said, noting that "5,800 people were on file at the Ministry of the Interior who (the authorities) believe can take action." .
Finally, the last threat is that coming from “the ultra-right”, with “the supremacists and the accelerationists”, added the minister. According to him, there would be “a few dozen”.
