    An unidentified gunman shot a Greek Orthodox priest on Saturday afternoon at a church in the French city of Lyon. The priest sustained serious injuries and is "fighting for his life," news reports said. Police have launched a manhunt around the city. "Security and emergency personnel are at the scene," France's Interior Ministry said, urging people to "avoid the area" where the shooting took place.

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday called for a boycott of French goods over the country's response to a school teacher's beheading in Paris.

    "Never give credit to French-labelled goods, don't buy them," he said in a televised speech. "I am calling to all my citizens from here to never help French brands or buy them." 

    A French teacher was beheaded by an Islamist in a Paris suburb on Friday for discussing Muhammad caricatures with his class. The knife-wielding attacker, identified as an 18-year-old immigrant, shouted "Allahu Akbar" at the scene of the gruesome killing, media reports say. The jihadi was shot dead after he charged at the police following the gruesome killing. 

    Israel is mobilizing troops along its northern border as tensions rise with Iran-backed Hezbollah terrorist organization. The Israeli reinforcements along its border with Lebanon come in light of threats issued by Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah after Israel's Defense Forces (IDF) took out his operatives linked to an attack on Israeli troops across the Lebanese and Syrian border.

    The Islamic Republic of Iran remains the "world’s worst state sponsor of terrorism," the U.S. State Department's annual Country Reports on Terrorism declared. Tehran was "directly involved in plotting terrorism" though its armed wing, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps IRGC and other state-controlled agencies, and had carried out terrorist "plots in recent years in North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and Africa," found the counter-terrorism report released on June 24.

    The number of individuals classified as Islamists by Germany's domestic intelligence service has crossed 26,000, German newspapers reported. The threat from Islamic terrorism in Germany "remains at a high level," the spy service disclosed. The Islamic State is "restructuring itself into an underground terrorist group" following its military defeat in the Middle East. The terrorist organization was particularly shifting towards a strategy of hitting soft targets, the intelligence report said.

    The new Islamophobia definition proposed by an all-party British parliamentary group could undermine police efforts in countering Islamic terrorism, the UK police warned. The legal adoption of the term could hamper law enforcement officers from going after terrorists and those spreading jihadist propaganda, UK's National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC), a body representing country's police chiefs, said.
