The French government says its army has increased its military capabilities after the recent Paris attacks, adding to France’s arsenal of nearly 40,000 troops.
But some analysts say the increase is unlikely to make the country any more safe.
The country’s National Guard, made up of mostly reservists and some officers, has about 12,000 soldiers, and the military has been trying to make sure the country remains relatively secure despite the recent attacks.
The Guard has also been conducting exercises in the area around Paris, including exercises with the National Guard.
French President Emmanuel Macron has said that France is ready to respond to any attack, even though he has not yet made any concrete plans.
The country’s defense minister has said the Guard is “ready to defend itself,” though the exact number of troops and equipment is not clear.
The National Guard was set up after the attacks in November 2015 that left 130 people dead, including 20 soldiers and five police officers.
The attack was blamed on Islamic State, which is also known as ISIS.
