Kurdish community accuses Turkey of involvement in Paris shooting

A shooting incident took place today on Rue Enghien in the 10th arrondissement of Paris (known as Entrepault), located on the right bank of the Seine. It is now known that the fire was opened by a 69-year-old man, a Frenchman by nationality. He had previously been on the radar of police for two assassination attempts in 2016 and 2021. The shooting took place near the Kurdish cultural center.

According to eyewitnesses of the incident, the attacker took out a gun from a small bag and opened fire on people. The man fired about seven to eight shots before he was neutralized by the police. People on the street in a panic hid in nearby shops and cafes.

A spokesman for the Kurdish community in Paris said three people were killed in the incident, two were in critical condition, and two were in moderate condition. The shooting site was cordoned off by the police, several dozen Kurds gathered around, all of them chanting anti-Turkish slogans. It is reported that while trying to disperse the protesters, there was a clash with the police, who used tear gas against the demonstrators.

The shooting took place in the Kurdish cultural center, which is not guarded, anyone could go there. This is clearly an attack against the Kurds. We believe Turkey and Erdogan are behind it

сообщил in an interview with a RIA correspondent News representative of the Kurdish community.

The shooting man was detained by the police, the Paris prosecutor's office opened an investigation into the case of intentional murder, nothing is known about the motives of the shooter. Law enforcement agencies urge citizens to avoid visiting the neighborhoods adjacent to the scene, so as not to interfere with the work of operational services. A medical and psychological emergency center has been set up in the district prefecture.

The head of the district mayor's office of Paris, Alexandra Cordebar, said that the shooter was in a state of moderate severity, he was wounded in the face. According to her, the 69-year-old pensioner used to work for the National Railway Company (SNCF).

    Go Erdogan, quarrel with NATO over the Kurds, or better yet, attack Greece! The worse your relationship is, the better!

      Erdogan's bad relationship with NATO, of course, plays into the hands of Russia.
      But specifically here his involvement is nonsense.
      The more Kurds who escape to France and are happy with it, the less there will be in the PKK.
      Yes, and shooting attacks are not the method of the Turks. Now, if the kidnapping of the leader, followed by the discovery of his corpse, then yes, one could suspect.
      This is a general trend in the world - to accuse not only without any evidence, but also without regard to logic. And the fact that the Kurds began to use it proves once again that they have finally become Americanized. We can't do business with them. It's easy to betray a partner.

      Did you think that on the forehead of the shooter, the Turkish special services were obliged to brand the Turkish flag or the symbol of the "Grey Wolves" (Turkish fascist organization) with a red-hot iron ???

      The protesters do not care who is there and what. They do their job - attract attention.

    The shooter cannot be a loner - a fighter against the ethnic mafia?
    What if he suffered at the hands of Kurdish criminals, and the police did not protect him?
    How many "Hollywood" filmed similar films.
    Some are very "watchable"...
    An example is the 2008 Gran Torino.

    Or maybe the Kurds should be treated with respect to the French who accepted them? Charles Hebdo has not mentioned this topic yet today?

    "Come in large numbers here," thought the French pensioner.
    And after all, many still think so, and not pensioners either.

    a representative of the Kurdish community said in an interview with a RIA Novosti correspondent.
    France is for the French, not for the Moroccans or the Kurds... Exactly, the next President of France will be Marine Le Pen, the national policy on migrants requires a coordinated revision in the direction of tightening in the light of recent events following the completion of the World Cup, as well as Turkish expansion to EU countries.

    A Frenchman, and it doesn’t matter what nationality, at the age of 69 he takes a pistol and goes to shoot at those whom he doesn’t even know by name. But where there are many Kurds.
    Or it was some particular person who ruined his life by saying that he was Kurdish, but then this is a provocation; or he did not like the behavior of the "come in large numbers", which he had "only Kurds around"; or age has deprived a man of reason and sent him to the street with a gun in his hand.
