  • \"The force of the ideological fascination is formidable, and if we have changed era it is because this hyper-terrorism is in the heart of our societies,\" Manuel Valls.
  • Islamic State jihadists attacked the streets of Paris on November 13, killing 130 in a series of attacks

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls on Saturday has warned of major attacks in Europe, terming them a high possibility.

He was speaking at the Munich Security Conference alongside Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. "We must be fully conscious of the threat, and react with a very great force and great lucidity. There will be attacks. Large-scale attacks. It's a certainty. This hyper-terrorism is here to stay," Valls said.

"The force of the ideological fascination is formidable, and if we have changed era it is because this hyper-terrorism is in the heart of our societies," he further added.

Islamic State jihadists attacked the streets of Paris on November 13, killing 130 in a series of attacks on bars, a football stadium and the Bataclan concert hall.

That came after 12 people were killed in a January attack on the Charlie Hebdo satirical news weekly, which had been in the jihadists' sights since publishing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in 2006.
