Terrorist Stabs Paris Cop and Wife While Shouting Allahu Akhbar

The three-year-old son of Jean-Baptiste Salvaing is safe tonight after both of his parents were murdered by an Islamic terrorist at their home. It is reported that the little boy hid behind a couch, but was rescued unharmed though he is in great shock.

The child was rescued and was “shocked but unharmed,” said Interior Minister, Mr. Brandet.

Salvaing, the Paris policeman, was ambushed and stabbed nine times in the stomach on Monday evening outside his Magnanville home by Larossi Abballa, who may have been a neighbor.  Abballa then forced his way into the home and continued his jihadist rampage, stabbing Salvaing’s 36-year-old wife, a secretary at the police department.

He stabbed the 42-year-old officer, who held the rank of “commandant” (commander), nine times in the stomach at his front door.  After stabbing the policeman, who was in plain clothes when he was killed, the attacker forced his way into the home.

Officers found the woman’s body with knife wounds to her neck after they stormed the house, and the attacker was killed during the assault, interior ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said. She worked as a secretary at a local police station.

Witnesses heard the assailant, described as a teenager or in his early 20s, shout “Allahu Akhbar”, Arabic for “God is great”.

The stabbing was “incontestably a terrorist act” said French President Francois Hollande and that his country was “facing a terror threat “of a very large scale. France is not the only country concerned (by the terrorist threat), as we have seen, again, in the United States, in Orlando.”

The murders were live streamed by Abballa and the propaganda arm of ISIL Amaq Agency stated that ISIL claimed responsibility. “Source to Amaq agency: Islamic State fighter kills deputy chief of the police station in the city of Les Mureaux and his wife,” Amaq’s statement said.

Five detonations or shots were heard by millions on live television while Mr. Brandet spoke to reporters as police stormed the home.

“Negotiations were opened but it became clear that they would not succeed and police then entered the home, where they found the body of a woman,” Mr. Brandet said.

“The toll is a heavy one,” Mr. Brandet told reporters, his voice shaking with emotion. “This commander, this police officer was killed by the individual … (and) we discovered the body of a woman. The assailant, the criminal was killed. Thankfully, a little boy was saved. He was in the house. He’s safe and sound. He was saved by police officers.”

The issue is not the type of weapon a jihadist uses, whether it is a gun in the Orlando massacre, or a knife in this Paris tragedy, the common denominator is the man who perpetrated an act of evil, committed in the name of Allah, against innocent people.
