France will deploy tens of thousands of soldiers and police officers during Christmas and New Year’s celebrations, its interior minister said, adding that the terrorist threat “is high” in the wake of recent attacks.

“For the end of year festivities, and especially Christmas weekend, there will be more than 91,000 members of the security forces deployed including members of the national police, national gendarmes and soldiers, as part of Operation Sentinel,” Interior Minister Bruno Le Roux said.

Operation Sentinel was launched by the French Army in the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo attacks back in January of 2015 and the later Paris attacks.
