    A knife attack that took place in the Paris suburb of Trappes this morning is just one of the many incidents that have taken place in Europe in recent months.

    Two people were killed and one was seriously wounded in a knife attack in the Paris suburb of Trappes with Daesh claiming one of its members had carried out the assault, though French prosecutors are not treating the incident as a case of terrorism. Earlier in the day, the police said they were carrying out a special operation in the commune of Trappes, located in the Yvelines prefecture of the greater Paris region. 

    Attack in Restaurant

    A knife attack in a Belgian restaurant in Plombieres on August 22 in the late afternoon led to two deaths. The motives of the attacker, in this case, were not linked to terrorism.

    This summer, France has suffered from an increase in violent offenses, with stabbing attacks, sexual assaults, and fights occurring across the country on almost a daily basis.

     Night Club Car Ramming

    On August 19, at least seven people were injured as the result of an incident near a night club in Cambrai, (Nord) France, where a man rammed his car into a nearby crowd.

    The young man, according to witnesses, earlier had a dispute with security personnel.

    Parking Lot

    The previous week, a knife-stabbing attack in the parking lot of a supermarket in Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux, France ended in the death of one person and another being wounded. 

    The 45-year-old victim suffered nine stab wounds, eight in the back and one in the carotid artery. Another person was injured and taken to a local hospital.

    Football Fans

    Two football fans died during celebrations in France after the country won the 2018 FIFA World Cup in July. According to the French TV channel BFMTV, a driver, who was celebrating the success of Les Bleus, crashed into a tree and died of a heart attack in Saint-Felix commune in northern France, while another fan broke his neck after jumping into a canal in Annecy, French newspaper Dauphine Libere reported.
