French President François Hollande on Thursday confirmed that a National Guard would be formed from existing reserve forces to better protect citizens facing terror attacks.

Hollande said parliamentary consultations on the formation of the force would take place in September “so that this force can be created as quickly as possible”.
Following the Bastille Day truck attack in Nice in which 84 people were killed, Hollande called on French “patriots” to enlist in the country’s operational reserves.
French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said on Wednesday that “2,500 French people have said they are interested and we are getting constant new inquiries”.
