Following the carnage in Paris, French Prime Minister, Manuel Valls on Monday, November 16, 2015 warned that new terror attacks are being planned in France and other European countries in coming days or weeks.

He said: “We know that operations were being prepared and are still being prepared, not only against France but other European countries too.

“Terrorism’ could hit again ‘in days or weeks to come.”

He further stated that Friday’s bloody attacks by Islamist militants in Paris were planned and organised from Syria, BBC reports.

Speaking during an interview, Mr Valls said: “France was not only attacked because we hit Daesh (Isis), but because we are France. We defend secularism, and we have conceptions of equality between men and women.”

Meanwhile, France had in the night of Sunday, November 15, 2015 launched ‘massive’ air strikes on Isis’s stronghold of Raqqa, in retaliation for Friday’s shootings.
