Two armed men waving flags of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) and shouting Islamist slogans rammed a car into an American-owned liquid gas factory near the southern French city of Grenoble Friday, June 26.

They hurled bombs into the building, causing several casualties and at least one death. Found inside the building were a decapitated body and a black Islamic flag with an Arabic inscription.

Outside, a severed head had been hung on the factory gates with another flag. It was not immediately clear whether the victim was a member of the factory personnel or brought in by the attackers.

The factory is owned by Air Products, a US-based industrial gases technology company.

One of the two terrorists, a man of 30 who had been on an intelligence watch list, was detained in a rapid police operation at the scene; the second escaped.

Grenoble has a large Jewish community, whose institutions like other Jewish centers across France have had armed police protection since the deadly January 7 terrorist attacks in Paris on the Charlie Hebdo magazine and the Jewish kosher supermarket.

Immediately after the attack in Grenoble Friday, French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve ordered security stepped up at “sensitive sites” across the country in case the gas factory attack heralded a multiple series in several locations. The sensitive sites include Jewish schools and synagogues and Paris thoroughfares where armed soldiers and police are on patrol.
