Teacher Stabbed by Man Claiming to be Associated with ISIS in Aubervilliers, France … Jihadist Stated, ‘This is a Warning, This is Only the Beginning’ (Update: Hoax, Teacher Made Up Story)
A teacher was attacked by a man claiming to be associated with ISIS on Monday at the Jean Perrin pre-school in the town of Aubervilliers, northeast of Paris. The 45 year old male victim was alone in his classroom at the kindergarten in the northern suburb of Aubervilliers, when the assailant burst in at around 7.30am local time. The injuries are reported to be non-life threatening. The attacker was wearing overalls and a balaclava, fled the scene and is currently being hunted by police. The investigation is being led by anti-terror officers. Previously, jihadists have also made specific threats against teachers in France, claiming they were “enemies of Allah” and that schools cultivated “ignorance and moral corruption” in children. According to a statement from Bobigny district prosecutor’s office, the attacker said, “This is a warning, this is only the beginning.”
A teacher was attacked and injured in a Paris suburb Monday by a man claiming to be associated with the ISIS terror group, French police said.
Sky News reported that the victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the incident, which is being investigated by anti-terror police.
The Agence France-Presse news agency reported that the teacher was stabbed in the side and the throat while preparing for class at the Jean Perrin pre-school in the town of Aubervilliers, northeast of Paris. Sky reported that the assailant, who remained at large, was carrying a knife and a pair of scissors.
AFP, citing a witness who works at the school, reported that the suspect was dressed in painter’s overalls, gloves and a ski mask. He arrived in the classroom without a weapon, but grabbed one that was lying around in the classroom. According to the witness, the attacker said, “This is Daesh. This is a warning.” Daesh is the Arabic acronym for ISIS
Turns out this idiot made up the entire story so that he could have himself transferred. Where, to a mental institution?
The French authorities said on Monday that a teacher who claimed to have been stabbed with scissors and a box cutter at a preschool near Paris had fabricated the story.
A police official in Aubervilliers confirmed that the teacher, who has not been identified, admitted to having invented the assault by a supporter of the Islamic State at the Jean Perrin preschool in Aubervilliers, a northern suburb of Paris.
It “was a fake attempt, done so that he could have himself transferred” to another job, the official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because he was not allowed to speak to reporters about the episode.
A spokeswoman for the Paris prosecutor’s office, Agnès Thibault-Lecuivre, said, “He wounded himself alone in his classroom, before the children arrived,” in what she called the first such instance in France. She said the preschool teacher, 45, was in the hospital for his wounds, which were not life-threatening, and was being questioned further.
