Among them, two of the soldiers have been seriously wounded while the others sustained light injuries, the Paris Police Authority has said.

Following the attack, a major police operation has been launched in search of the vehicle in the Levallois-Perret commune.

The Mayor of Paris Patrick Balkany condemned the incident and claimed that there is "no doubt" that vehicle driving into soldiers "was a deliberate act".

According to reports, the soldiers were on a routine patrol as part of Operation Sentinelle that was launched after the Charlie Hebdo attack in January 2015.
