French leader Emanuel Macron has deployed more police accompanied by armored vehicles near the renowned French landmark Arc de Triomphe to deal with the Yellow Vests as protests reach their eleventh week.

Several armored cars and multiple police vans have been deployed to the Arc de Triomphe as footage from a broadcast from BFM TV and amateur video revealed.

Several dozen of Yellow Vests congregated near the monument on the Champs Elysees ahead of the continuing protests on Saturday.

French authorities claimed that protests might descend into violence and riots.

But no clashes with police have been reported as yet.

Earlier this month the French President deployed riot police armed with "anti-terrorist" semi-automatic assault rifles, using live ammunition, to deal with the protests.

Officers were caught on video with the weapons as Macron's law and order crisis spirals out of control.

But French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner claimed the armed police were equipped with body cameras, calling it a "requirement for transparency."

Castaner's announcement comes after a fireman, who joined with the Yellow Vest protest movement in France, was shot in the back of the head by French police causing severe brain injuries.

At least 2,000 protesters and 1,000 police have been injured during the protests, as many citizens continue to dispute many new taxes by Macron and impending globalism.

The protests against globalism have intensified after German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the French President signed a new pact for the two countries to form a "European army."

Both Merkel and Macron have long been pushing the idea of a joint European Army for the bloc that would be part of the broader NATO alliance.

US President Donald Trump mocked both European leaders late last year by tweeting that "it was Germany in World Wars One & Two - How did that work out for France?"

A senior French politician recently called on police to use "shoot-to-kill" tactics against France's Yellow Vest protesters.

The former French Education Minister Luc Ferry has demanded that police officers should start firing their weapons at demonstrators.

He claimed that killing them would "put an end the violence."

68-year-old Ferry, who served in Jacques Chirac's government and is now a philosopher, claims that the protests against President Macron's tax hikes and other policies are the sign of a "growing law and order crisis."
