It happens almost every day: For two weeks now, the Yvelines police have been the target of projectiles every evening as they pass through immigrant neighborhoods during the imposed curfew.
Interventions to secure a Covid-19 lockdown in the “sensitive” areas of Yvelines near Paris, are becoming more and more dangerous. In the night of Thursday to Friday, officers were again taken to task in Mantes-la-Jolie and in Trappes.
In Trappes, hostilities started at 5 pm le Parisien reported. The day before, it was at Les Mureaux that the police were attacked by residents.
The night from Friday to Saturday was not really quieter than the others for the police, again seeing projectiles lanced at them in several social housing estates of the department.
At Mureaux, around 6:50 pm, some fifteen people gathered on avenue Georges-Bizet stoning a police patrol.
Shortly before 10 pm in Mantes-la-Jolie , around thirty “youths” chased after the police. Arab and African youths set up a real ambush in rue du Docteur-Broussay against the officers. A group of about 80 rioters then gathered before tipping rubbish bins on the road.
At the end of the evening, the scenario was repeated on the side of Poissy where the police of the anti-crime brigade were also stoned.
