ISIS Calls For Ramadan Attacks
On Monday, an audiotape circulated online that praised the attacks in Iran’s capital. The audio said that the country is “weaker than a spider’s web,” and should be hit harder and more often.
Additional attacks were called out upon Russia and Australia as the tape also said, “heaving is reached under the shadow of swords.” Muslims who do not support ISIS are greatly enraged that ISIS is using their religious holiday to promote terror.
ISIS Calls Previous Lone Wolves “Role Models”
The Atlantic reports:
“Al-Muhajer’s message also referenced regions outside the Middle East, including the U.S., Europe, Russia, Australia, and the Philippines. “To the brethren of faith and belief in Europe, America, Russia, Australia, and others,” he said, “your brothers in your land have done well, so take them as role models and do as they have done.”
“On June 3, ISIS fighters carried out an attack on the London Bridge, which killed seven people and injured 48. Less than two weeks earlier, a suicide bomber detonated a homemade explosive at the Manchester Arena, killing 23 people, including children, and wounding 119. The attack occurred on May 22, just a few days before the start of Ramadan.”
More Attacks During Muslim Holiday
Egyptian Streets reports:
“Other attacks took place during the holy month of Ramadan that started over two weeks ago. The attacks included a massive explosion in Afghanistan’s capital of Kabul. It left 80 killed.”
“Another attack took place in London, leaving at least seven killed. Although the audio clip wasn’t verified, it sounded the same as a previous recording attributed to Al-Muhajer, according to Reuters.”
