A vehicle has hit a group of French soldiers in the Paris suburb of Levallois-Perret, leaving several people wounded on Wednesday.

Police have launched an operation to find the black BMW which left the scene after the accident.

According to the French police, four people sustained minor injuries and two individuals have more serious injuries.

The injured soldiers belong to Operation Sentinelle, an operation introduced in the wake of the terrorist attacks in 2015.

“The car was standing near the barracks. Its driver was obviously waiting for the servicemen to go out… I believe that the event can be called a planned act,” Mayor Patrick Balkany said on BFMTV television channel.

The incident has not been declared a terrorist attack yet.
