On July 14 , 2016 there was a attack in Nice , France. The attack happened on Bastille days , when a cargo truck intentionally struck a crowd of people. The terrorist attack killed 86 and injured 434. The attacker Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel was behind the attack and was believed to have accomplices. The attack was killed on site after being shot at before driving into the crowd.
The people in the attack were celebrating Bastille days. The attack happened at 10:30 p.m. well the crowd was watching firework. The were believed to be five accomplices in the attack. The attack lasted only a few minutes as the attack drove through the crowd. People were running and trying to hide from the vehicle well the fireworks kept going.
The attack was claimed by ISIS and said that Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel was a soldier of the ISIS group. The attack had been planned for months and was being ready to be played out. The French are fighting back against ISIS as they are sending troops to Iraq. The french army is conducting air attacks or ISIS to combat the issue. France has set a state of emergency under order until January 1 , 2017.
I believe that France should have seen it coming. They have been getting attacked by terrorist for almost a year and Bastille days is a very big holiday with people outside which makes France vulnerable. France going under state of emergency is a good idea so that they can avoid as many civilian casualties as possible from terrorist attacks. Terrorism is destroying there country and has plagued them for the last year and has been getting progressively worse so fighting the war on ISIS is the best opportunity of them stopping attacks.
