BREAKING: Manhunt as car tries to PLOUGH into soldiers outside army barracks
The man shouted in Arabic at the soldiers before the attack, and sped off afterwards in what reports said was a stolen Peugeot 208.
The troops of the 93rd Mountain Artillery Regiment, who were out on their morning jog outside their base in Varces-Allières-et-Risset, in the French Alps, had to jump into a ditch to avoid the pavement-mounting Peugeot-make auto, according to reports.
A French judicial police officer stands at the entrance to the barracks in Varces-Allieres-et-Risset on March 29, 2018, after a man tried to ram his auto into soldiers jogging nearby. Gendarmerie have cordoned off the area and begun searching for the man, while the military has reinforced security around the barracks, Mr Brulon said.
The scare comes nearly one week after ISIS-claimed gunman Redouane Lakdim killed four people near the southern city of Carcassonne, including a police officer who exchanged himself for a hostage held at a local grocery store.
The country has been on high alert after ISIS supporter Redouane Lakdim went on a rampage in Trebes last Friday, killing four people and injuring 15 others in the first militant attack since President Emmanuel Macron lifted a state of emergency.
The security forces have been targeted in several jihadist attacks that have claimed the lives of 240 people around France in the past three years.
Colonel Benoît Brulon, spokesman for the police added: "Around 8.15am local time, he verbally threatened six or seven soldiers who were jogging and then insulted a second group of soldiers who were also out jogging".
