أعلنت السلطات الفرنسية عن انتهاء العملية الأمنية الكبرى، التي بدأت نحو الساعة 4:30 صباحًا (03:30 بتوقيت غرينتش)، فجر اليوم الأربعاء في شمال باريس، بحثًا عن العقل المدبر للهجمات الدموية التي شهدتها باريس.

نصر المجالي: قالت مصادر في الشرطة الفرنسية إن ثلاثة إرهابيين قتلوا خلال عملية المداهمة، بينهم انتحارية فجّرت نفسها بحزام ناسف، فيما احتجزت قوات الأمن سبعة أشخاص كانوا في الشقة أو قربها، بينهم سيدة.

ويعتقد أن الانتحارية التي فجّرت نفسها بعد إطلاقها النار على قوات الشرطة، هي زوجة "الإرهابي" عبدالحميد أباعود، الذي تبحث عنه الشرطة. وكانت وسائل الإعلام الفرنسية قالت إن قوات مكافحة الإرهاب المحلية طوّقت، منذ الساعات الأولى من الأربعاء 18 تشرين الثاني (نوفمبر)، مبنى في شارع جون جوريس في منطقة سان دوني يتحصن به عدد من المطلوبين بخصوص هجمات باريس.

وحسب مصادر أمنية فرنسية، بين المتحصنين داخل المبنى المطلوب الأول والعقل المدبر لاعتداءات باريس البلجيكي ذو الأصول المغربية المدعو عبد الحميد أباعود (27 عامًا)، كما يعتقد أن أحد المهاجمين، وهو صلاح عبد السلام (26 عامًا)، الذي تعرّض لملاحقة دولية تركز على بلجيكا، قد يكون أيضًا داخل المبنى. في غضون ذلك، طلبت الشرطة الفرنسية من سكان ضاحية سان دوني البقاء في منازلهم جراء عمليات المداهمة لضمان سلامتهم.

تأتي عملية المداهمة في إطار التحقيقات التي تجريها السلطات الفرنسية، وذلك بعد 5 أيام من الهجمات الإرهابية التي استهدفت باريس، الجمعة 13 الشهر الجاري، والتي راح ضحيتها 129 شخصًا.

وأصدر مكتب المدعي في باريس بيانًا قال فيه إن خمسة أشخاص على الاقل محتجزون للاستجواب لدى الشرطة في ضاحية سان دوني في أعقاب مداهمة استهدفت أعضاء مشتبه فيهم في تنظيم الدولة الإسلامية يعتقد أنهم وراء الهجمات التي تعرّضت لها العاصمة الفرنسية.

وقال البيان: "ثلاثة رجال كانوا متحصنين داخل الشقة السكنية نقلوا واحتجزوا للاستجواب"، وأضاف المدعي أن رجلًا وامرأة كانا على مقربة من الشقة التي تحصن فيها الثلاثة يخضعان أيضًا للاستجواب.

وقال مصدر قضائي إن المداهمة التي بدأتها الشرطة الفرنسية في ضاحية سان دوني في باريس في ساعة مبكرة من صباح يوم الأربعاء تستهدف بلجيكيًا من تنظيم الدولة الإسلامية يشتبه في أنه العقل المدبر للهجمات.

وقال المصدر إن عبد الحميد أباعود، الذي كان يعتقد في بادئ الأمر أنه أدار العملية من سوريا، محاصر مع مجموعة من الأشخاص في شقة في الضاحية الشمالية لباريس بالقرب من الإستاد الوطني، الذي كان أحد الاهداف التي تعرّضت للهجوم يوم الجمعة الماضي.

Paris terror plot mastermind is DEAD. Police remove two bodies from siege apartment after French commandos kill Belgian ISIS leader during gun battle

The mastermind behind the Paris massacre, Abdelhamid Abaaoud (pictured top right), is dead, according to two senior intelligence officials. The 27-year-old Belgian jihadi leader is said to have been killed by French commandos when a flat was raided in the early hours of this morning. More than 100 armed officers stormed a flat in Saint-Denis believing Abaaoud was inside with six other terrorists. Security sources said earlier today it prevented a new ISIS double terror attack on Paris. Eyewitnesses said a blonde female suicide bomber who blew herself up during a raid by French police screamed Help me, help me moments before detonating a device as snipers opened fire. This afternoon police were seen removing two bodies from the apartment (pictured left).

The mastermind behind the Paris massacre, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, is dead, according to two senior intelligence officials.

The 27-year-old Belgian jihadi leader is said to have been killed by French commandos when a flat was raided in the early hours of this morning.

More than 100 armed officers stormed the flat in Saint-Denis believing Abaaoud was inside with six other terrorists.

The French authorities have still not confirmed if he was there or if he is dead or alive but two European intelligence officials told the Washington Post that he had been killed inside the building. 

French prosecutor Francois Molins said this evening that the two terrorists who died in the raid, a female suicide bomber who blew herself up and another jihadi killed by a grenade, had not yet been identified.

But he revealed that neither Abaaoud nor Salah Abdeslam, who has been on the run since Fridays attacks, were among those arrested.

Security sources said earlier today that the raid, which saw terrorists fire around 5,000 rounds during an hour-long shoot out that left five French police officers injured, prevented a new ISIS double terror attack on Paris. It was carried out after security services received a tip-off on Monday that Abaaoud was ‘on French territory’.

Mr Molins said: A new team of terrorists was neutralised and all indications are that given their arms, their organisational structure and their determination, the commando [of jihadis] could have struck.

He told a press conference how the ISIS terror squad who attacked Paris last Friday arrived in the city from Belgium in a convoy of three vehicles on November 12, the day before the atrocities. A VW Polo, Seat and Renault Clio used in the massacre were rented by the Abdeslam brothers in Belgium and arrived in the Paris area within ten minutes of each other.

A mobile phone was later found by police outside the Bataclan concert hall, where 89 people were murdered. A text sent at 9.42pm local time read: We’re off and we’re starting’, but the French authorities do not know who the recipient was.

Bodies have this evening been removed from the flat raided by French police in Saint-Denis where Paris massacre mastermind Abdelhamid Abaaoud, 27, was believed to be inside with six other terrorists. The French authorities will not say if he was there or if he is dead or alive

Aftermath: A forensics squad inspects a blood-covered mattress dumped in the glass-covered street outside the Saint-Denis flat used by seven suspected terrorists 

One of the bodies is removed from inside the apartment building (left) and loaded into a hearse (right) following the six-hour siege

Drama: The terror suspect was dragged from the building and broken glass with no trousers on - presumably in case he was wearing a suicide belt - as police trained their weapons on the flat

Wanted men: It has been reported the target of the police siege in Saint-Denis was Abdelhamid Abaaoud (left), thought to be the mastermind behind the Paris attacks who is said to have been killed. Salah Abdeslam (right), who has been on the run since Fridays attacks is not among those arrested according to a French prosecutor

Arrests: Seven people in total have been arrested in the operation including two people away from the under siege flat, left outside a shopping centre and right near the apartment

The Saint-Denis siege started at 4.25am when SWAT teams and special forces surrounded the building after security services hunting for Abaaoud spent days watching flats and tapping phones. 

Kalashnikovs were being used against the security forces, but after an an hour and a half of furious exchanges, there was a lull in the fighting. 

It was then that a woman with long blonde hair appeared at a third floor apartment window.

An eyewitness identified only as Christian, 20, told Le Parisien: ‘During a ten or fifteen minute lull in the shooting I heard a woman shouting: "Help, help, help me!" 

‘The police asked her to identify herself, and to show herself. She held her hands up but she didn’t reveal her face. 

‘She withdrew her hands out of sight, and then put them up again several times. 

‘The police shouted at her: "Keep your hands in the air!" They told her: “We’re going to shoot.” The shooting resumed. The police were firing from the roof of the building opposite. Suddenly there was an enormous explosion. It was probably the woman who blew herself up.

‘The windows shattered. Lots of objects from the apartment were thrown into the street, pieces of human flesh as well. They are still there. You can see a bit of the head, of skin, of ribs.’

Thibault Chaffotte, another witness, told Liberation: ‘I heard police talking about a blonde woman with long hair. I believe this was the suicide bomber. 

They told her: Don’t lower your arms. Put your hands in the air. Afterwards, there was a very loud explosion. I think that’s when she activated her bomb. It was big. Many of the windows in the road shattered.’

A seven-year-old sniffer dog called Diesel sent into the block to look for booby traps was killed in the blast. Another terror suspect was killed by a grenade blast.

Investigation: After the siege ended this morning a huge team of forensics started work outside the flat - marking out spent bullets with numbers next to them with a bloodied blue mattress thrown out of the window of the building (bottom of picture)

Secretive: French medics were ordered to put up sheets as some seven people arrested were transferred to Bobigny hospital. Two have been shot in the arm and are being operated on at a secure hospital in Bobigny, Paris

Walking wounded: A police officer with an injured foot is one of at least five police who have been injured in the ferocious gunfight. The terrorists also shot and killed a seven-year-old specialist police dog Diesel, sent into the block

Protection: Armed officers hidden behind a bullet proof shield on wheels, left, and others in riot gear and bullet proof vests helped end the stand-off

In their sights: Police move in on the apartment where the female suicide bomber blew herself up after firing an AK-47 machine at officers. At least one other jihadi is also dead 

Human cost: A sobbing woman, left, and a man carrying a baby in a pink coat and pyjamas, centre, are surrounded by dozens of masked and armed police evacuating residents from the siege street

 
 
 
 
 
 

Map: The raid was on a flat in the north of Paris - close to the three attacks close to the Stade de France - and not far from the shootings and suicide attacks on Bataclan and a series of bars, k

 

The stand-off ended as a bloodied and half-naked suspect was dragged out of the apartment close to the Stade de France at 10.24am.

At least five police were injured in the ferocious gunfight including one shot in the foot seen being carried from the scene. Witnesses told MailOnline their street was turned into a warzone after long periods of intense machine gun fire and at least seven large explosions, caused by the suicide bomber and hand grenades. There were no hostages involved.

It came a Europe-wide alert was put out for a Citroen Xsara car that could be carrying Salah Abdeslam, the fugitive wanted in the Paris attacks, a Spanish security official said.

It was sent by Spanish authorities to border control police in the north-eastern Catalonia region next to France. The security official confirmed the document was authentic but said the bulletin was sent to authorities across Europe and not only to Spain.

As the Saint-Denis siege ended after six hours this morning it was revealed:

Paris massacres mastermind Abdelhamid Abaaoud, 27, was believed to be inside the safehouse at centre of the raid; Police and secret services were watching several flats in Saint-Denis and had tapped phones in the area before they swooped at 4.25am; Operation became more important after a tip-off that the Paris terror cell were about to launch a new attack on citys business district, La Defense;  Two terror suspects have been killed. One was a female suicide bomber who blew herself up. French and Belgian media have reported she is Abaaouds wife or a cousin. The other fatality was a man killed by a grenade; Two of the arrested terror plotters have been shot in the arm and are being operated on at a secure hospital in Bobigny, Paris; Seven people have been arrested. Five were held in the flat or the rubble inside apartment block and two more were held nearby; Five police officers were injured. A Belgian Shepherd sniffer dog called Diesel was sent in to the block and killed by the terror cell; French government confirms that all 129 victims of Fridays attacks have now been identified;  David Cameron tells MPs one Briton died – Nick Alexander - three have been released from hospital and further 15 being treated for trauma. 
TIMELINE: HOW THE SIEGE OF SAINT-DENIS UNFOLDED 

4.25am (Local time) French police and security forces launch a major operation in the north Paris suburb of Saint-Denis. Abdelhamid Abaaoud, mastermind of Fridays attacks, is its target.

Scores of police officers storm the building, but are held back when they meet heavy gunfire suffer several casualties. A large explosion is heard.

5:55am Trucks carrying French soldiers and a number of ambulances and fire engines are seen rushing towards Saint Denis. Surrounding roads are sealed off and residents are told to stay indoors.

6.27am A helicopter is seen circling over the apartment block and a pedestrian area at the centre of the siege. More police reinforcements arrive at the scene.

7.20am Intense gunfire and several explosions are heard in Saint-Denis, with some people claiming to have heard the sound of grenades. Police in riot gear move to clear civilian bystanders from the streets.

7.30am As the siege enters its third hour, seven explosions rock Saint-Denis and witnesses close to the building report the sound of grenades coming from the apartment block. One explosion was from a woman detonating a suicide vest. 

8.20am Police announce that two suspects - a man and a woman - were killed in the operation and two suspects detained, although it is not known if Abaaoud is among them, dead or alive. 

9.00am Three more suspects from flat are arrested another man and woman are arrested nearby. 

9.30am One suspect remains in the apartment five hours after the operation began. The number of arrests rises to five, including two at a nearby shopping centre.

10.00am French authorities confirm the death of a police dog in the operation and a police officer is shot in the foot 

10.34am Siege ends as a man with no trousers on is dragged from building. There were seven arrests in total.

Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said authorities are still working to determine the fate of Abaaoud - and identify those killed and arrested. He said confirmed three suspected jihadis were held in the flat and two more as they tried to hide in the rubble of the block.

He said: It is currently impossible to give the identify of those arrested, which is being verified. Everything will be done to work out who is who and thanks to forensics who and was in the apartment. 

Mr Molins said police began the raid on Wednesday after gathering information that he could be in a safehouse apartment in Saint-Denis. Mr Molins said the information was collected from tapped telephone conversations, surveillance and witness accounts.

He told reporters after the operation was over that authorities are still working to determine who was inside.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve arrived in Saint-Denis and said: I would like to pay tribute to all those involved in the operation, 110 in total, who acted with bravery and under heavy fire in conditions that they had never experienced before.

I would also like to pay tribute to the cool-headedness of St Denis residents. They also contributed to the success of the operation.

Armed police appeared on a street outside the Saint-Denis flat before dawn today and then at least three trucks of soldiers and special forces arrived as back up.

Witnesses told MailOnline said there were long periods of intense machine gun fire and at least seven large explosions.

Lotfi, a 50-year-old who was in the area, said: I heard police officers talking to a woman with long blonde hair.

I think she was the kamikaze. They told her not to lower her arms, to keep her hands up in the air, and then there was a massive explosion. I think thats when she detonated her bomb. It really was a very loud explosion.

Lots of windows on the street were shattered, and then the firefight started and it was going on nonstop.

Lofti, who would not offer his surname, said he saw a police dog called Diesel blown to pieces. The German Shepherd was there to sniff out explosives. 

One of the arrested suspects is the man who appears to have rented the flat to the terror cell.

Jawad Ben Dowt, 30, admitted in an interview near the under siege apartment on Rue de Corbillon he handed it over to two men who came from Belgium two days ago.

He said: A friend of mine asked me to host two of his buddies for a few days.

I said there was no mattress, they told me its okay, they just wanted water and to pray. My friend said they were from Belgium.

I was asked to a favour and I said yes. I was not aware that it was terrorists - moments later police grabbed him and put him in handcuffs. 

A female friend of his who was also held said she stayed there last week and described it as a squat and said the Belgian men arrived on Monday.

A woman living below the under-siege flat with her young baby described being woken up by an explosion.

She told French broadcaster BMFTV: I awoke to an explosion. After that I heard gun shots and there was lots of shooting. The terrorists were fighting at the police and the police were firing back.

There were shots, explosions. We didnt know where to go. My son and I were in panic. 

There was dust falling from the ceiling because of the explosions. I kept shouting If youre from the police, please help me. Im here with my baby. But they kept shooting and shooting.

Cornered: This is the dramatic moment a suspect is arrested by police during a six-hour siege on a flat where the Paris massacre mastermind and six other terrorists were were thought to be hiding

The suspect was cornered by officers who shout in English: On your knees! Show me your back!

Both videos were captured on a mobile phone from an apartment overlooking the scene at around 6.20am, just yards from a flat where a female suicide bomber blew herself up during a six-hour siege by police hunting the masterminds behind the Paris atrocities.

The stand-off between 100 French police and special forces and the Paris terror cell ended as a bloodied and half-naked suspect was dragged out of an apartment block through broken glass in Saint-Denis - close to the Stade de France.

The gunfight started at 4.30am when SWAT teams and special forces surrounded the building believing it contained Abdelhamid Abaaoud, 27, the architect of the plots that killed 129 people. It is not known if he was there or if he is dead or alive. 

 

Small street: The siege took place on Rue du Corbillon - a narrow street linking two of Saint-Denis main roads - where forensics teams are now gathering evidence against the terror suspects taken alive 

Rush: Police with pistols drawn rush towards the apartment block while soldiers with machine guns peer around the corner close to the siege

Huge numbers: At least 100 police officers and soldiers are understood to have taken part in the operation in northern Paris suburb of Saint Denis

Brute force: Witnesses told MailOnline said that more than 100 armed police and special forces in full battle gear were taking part in the operation to neutralise the terrorists

Units: Teams of armed police appeared on a street outside the flat before dawn followed by several trucks of soldiers and special forces as back up

Last stand? Anti-terror police officers with bullet-proof shields take up positions behind a bar during the siege in Saint Denis, a northern suburb of Paris, as they stormed a flat containing up to six Paris massacre suspects

Police sources: Agence France-Presse reported that the target of the police siege in Saint-Denis is Abdelhamid Abaaoud, thought to be the mastermind behind the Paris attacks. It had been thought that he was in Syria

HERO POLICE DOG IS KILLED DURING TERRORISTS LAST STAND 

A French anti-terror police dog named Diesel (pictured) has died after being blown up

An anti-terror police dog has died after being blown up by a female suicide bomber during a firefight with suspected ISIS militants behind the Paris massacre.

The seven-year-old Belgian Shepherd named Diesel was killed during a raid by up to 100 police and soldiers on a flat in the French capital this morning.

A witness said Diesel, who is trained to sniff out explosives, was blown to pieces when a jihadi bride came out firing her AK-47 at police before detonating her suicide vest.

Tributes quickly poured in to the respected canine, with one police handler saying: Its a little like losing one our colleagues.

One Twitter user said Diesel had died to defend our colours.

The official profile for Police Nationale tweeted that Diesel was killed by terrorists in the current operation in Saint-Denis.

The force said that assault and explosives search dogs are indispensable to the work of the French anti-terror unit known as RAID.

Benson Hoi, 29, a software engineer, lives just 100 metres away from the apartment which is under siege and was woken up by the sound of gunfire at around 4am this morning.

He says he is terrified one of the suspects may blow themselves up, hitting the residents hiding in the surrounding apartments.

Mr Hoi told MailOnline: I am right next to the scene and at the moment I can see about 100 police officers, soldiers and at least 50 police cars.

He said he initially thought fireworks were going off when he was woken by the sound of gunfire, but when he checked Twitter he realised what was happening outside his home.

He said: After about 15 minutes of panicking I decided to live stream what was happening outside so the world could see what was happening. Police were telling people to stay away from their windows so i left my phone on the window sill.

I can still hear police shouting on the street now. I heard seven explosions a few minutes ago.

At first some people were leaving their apartments to see what was going on, and the police chucked them back into their apartments.

He said they have not been told anything else, and police are eurging residents to remain inside away from their windows and doors.

He said: Im still worrying for my life. If those people are suicide bombers Im not exactly safe.

For the sake of common sense Im staying away from the windows, but I do not feel safe.  

Baptiste Marie, a 26-year-old journalist who lives near the scene of the stand-off, said: It started with an explosion. Then there was second big explosion. Then two more explosions. There was an hour of gunfire. 

Riot police were clearing the streets early Wednesday, pointing guns at curious residents to move them off the roads and telling them to go home.

Mr Marie said the officers seemed nervous - you could see it in their eyes, he said.  

Residents said they were first woken by an explosion which shook the neighbourhood at about 4am (3am GMT) as police surrounded the flat, although it is not known what led them to the building.

Witnesses say this was followed by an hour of automatic gunfire and explosions as an intense firefight ensued between police and the suspects holed up in the apartment.

Neighbour Amine Guizani said: They were shooting for an hour. Nonstop. There were grenades. It was going, stopping. Kalashnikovs. Starting again.

Teams of armed police appeared on a street outside the Saint-Denis flat before dawn today and then at least three trucks of soldiers and special forces arrived as back up.  

 

Stay away: Residents have been told to hide their homes and away from windows and some were also been evacuated
