While there have been no overt threats against the Paris 2024 Olympics, the event is a potential target for militant groups like Islamic State (IS) and al-Qaeda, as well as radicalized lone individuals. Since 2014, militant attacks in France have resulted in 265 deaths and nearly 1,210 injuries, with the deadliest occurring on 13 November 2015, when IS-perpetrated shootings and suicide attacks in Paris killed 130 and injured 413.

During the Games, nearly 20,000 military personnel will be deployed, and CCTV surveillance, including algorithmic video monitoring, will be enhanced. Visitors should remain vigilant in crowded areas and near places of worship, and report any suspicious items or behavior to authorities.
