France: Firefighters attacked in no-go zone with Molotov cocktails


The war escalates. Top priority? Do not criticize Islam.

Firefighters in the French department of Vaucluse will now be escorted by police when responding to fires in “sensitive areas” following an attack over the weekend. The firefighters were lured to an area at around 11:45 pm after suspects lit garbage on fire. Once the firefighters were on the scene, the suspects attacked them. This is not new. Muslim youths lure firefighters to these “sensitive areas” in order to ambush them.

France: Firefighters attacked with Molotov cocktails

By Arthur Lyons, Voice of Europe,

Last Friday, French firefighters were violently attacked by a group of thugs in what was the second incident of its kind in less than two weeks. 

While responding to an incident in the commune of Cavaillon, firefighters in the department of Vaucluse were lured to an area at around 11:45 pm after a group of suspects set fire to a garbage can. According to BMFT, once the firefighters had arrived at the scene, a group attacked them with petanque balls and Molotov cocktails. 

Although none of the emergency service responders were injured during the attack, Commander David Durupt, the head of the Cavaillon Fire Department, said that the attack was deliberate. 

“There was a clear intention to harm,” Durupt said.

“The trash was probably burned intentionally, the objective was clearly to attack the firefighters,” he added.

This year, violence in Cavaillon has risen by a shocking 23 percent broadcaster TF1 reported while adding that firefighters employed by the department of Vaucluse would, in the future, be escorted by police when responding to incidents in ‘sensitive’ no-go areas.

Last week, firefighters in Limoges were attacked by a group of people who hurled stones at them. Their vehicle damaged as a result of the attack. Luckily, no firefighters were injured.

In July, firefighters in the region of Loire-Atlantique claimed to have been attacked by members of the public every day since the beginning of July. The repeated attacks prompted 15 firefighters in Nantes to protest against the violence.

According to Ouest France, between 30 and 40 firefighters have been assaulted since the beginning of 2019.

Macron’s France has seen attacks on emergency service workers become more and more common.

In June, volunteers working for the Fédération Nationale de Protection Civile (FNPC/National Federation of Civil Protection) were attacked with acid in the commune of Ygos-Saint-Saturnin.
