On 13 November 2015, at least 130 people were killed in terror attacks in several parts of Paris, including the Bataclan music hall and the Stade de France national stadium.
Salah Abdeslam, the main suspect in the 13 November 2015 Paris terror attacks, has claimed that the three co-accused were not in the know about the plot. Abdeslam and 19 other defendants are being tried in connection with the attacks that claimed the lives of at least 130 people.

"They helped me but they knew nothing at all [about the attacks’ plot]," he said, adding, “they are in prison but did nothing”.

On Wednesday, Abdeslam, the only surviving member of the group that carried out the 2015 Paris terror attacks, claimed during the trial that he was "a soldier of Daesh"*.

The 31-year-old is accused of transporting the two terrorists who detonated explosive belts at the Stade de France six years ago. He will reportedly be questioned several times during the trial, which is expected to last about nine months.
November 2015 Paris Terror Attacks
On 13 November 2015, three groups of gunmen and suicide bombers struck almost simultaneously in several parts of Paris, including the Bataclan music hall and the Stade de France national stadium.
The attacks resulted in 130 victims dying and more than 400 being injured. Daesh claimed responsibility for the attacks which prompted French authorities to declare a state of emergency in the country at the time, something that was only lifted in 2017. The perpetrators belonged to a terrorist cell, which had also been involved in the 2016 Brussels bombings that killed at least 32 people and injured 300 more.
The state of emergency was declared after a series of near-simultaneous gun and bomb attacks in Paris and a truck ramming in Nice claimed over 200 lives last year. It is set to expire in mid-July. - Sputnik International, 1920, 16.07.2018

Al-Qaeda* in the Arabian Peninsula took responsibility for the shooting, which was followed by several related attacks in the Ile-de-France region, including the Hypercacher kosher supermarket siege where a terrorist killed four Jewish people.
