French President Emmanuel Macron said Saturday that the fall of the so-called "caliphate" run by Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria has removed a source of potential terror attacks against France.
"A significant threat to our country" has been "eliminated", Macron said on Twitter, adding that "the step taken today is immense."
"But the threat remains and the fight against terrorist groups must continue," he added.
France has suffered a wave of jihadist-inspired terror attacks that have killed 250 people since 2015, when gunmen massacred 12 people at the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris.
The next day a man took hostages at a Jewish supermarket on the edge of Paris, killing four before being shot and killed by police.
"If you attack the caliphate, we will attack you," the attacker, Amedy Coulibaly, said in a posthumous video.
Macron's comments came as Prime Minister Edouard Philippe and other officials gathered in Trebes, southern France, to mark the first anniversary of a shooting spree by a man claiming allegiance to the Islamic State.

I wonder who led the effort to destroy ISIS? Anybody?
Anyone who thinks the Koran and other books aren’t standing ready to make more Muslim Terrorists from previously peaceful folks has their head stuck somewhere.
This is especially the case if one thinks the defeat of ISIS/ISIL will be an historical footnote in the minds of those already radicalized Muslims that they welcome home after having been with that group and they these won’t pose any dangers.
Islam is like certain brands of dog food when it comes to terrorism: it makes its own gravy.
Will France say ‘thank you’? No.
Not when you have a bunch of worms all over the place in small cells.
They just decided they were being naughty, said they were sorry and would never do it again, and everyone kissed and made up.
Imbecile doesn’t even realize that the millions of moslems living in France are a much larger threat to France than ISIS ever was.
I think the Russians did a lot.
We can also thank Putin.
99% of the ISIS survivors moved to France ?
Sure. All the hoardes of muslims already in france attacking cops and driving over people are no longer a physical threat to anyone in france.
Bingo, you win. Only a matter of time....Charles Martel is spinning in his grave, the one in the Cathedral that was trashed a couple of weeks ago in Paris. Muslims, anyone?
Trump defeated ISIS yet NOT a peep from the commie media
And yet, this tali-whacker will still insult Trump every chance he gets.
Thanks Eleutheria5. The immediate threat to France remains, and is Macron.
That clown’s Muslim problems are just beginning.
If the Yellow Jackets don’t get him, the religion of hate, death and lying will.
Well, except the moose limbs laying around gay Paris.
Islamic terrorism cannot be eliminated. Not until Muslims use the Koran as their bible and constitution.
Anywhere Muslims live, they are a threat. Their religion is a threat. It’s not a religion when that religion advocates violence to eliminate all of those that are not of Islamic beliefs.
No it doesn’t, because you let too many of them into your country to fester, and destroy France at their own leisure.
