84 Year Old Priest Father Jacques Hamel Beheaded by Islamic Terrorist in France … ISIS Claims Responsibility

 THE RADICAL ISLAMIC TERROR CONTINUES

An 84-year-old priest was killed and four other people taken hostage by two armed radical Islamist terrorists at a church in a suburb of Rouen in northern France. The radical Islamist savages slit the throat of an 84 year old Father Jacques Hamel and beheaded him.

French President Francois Hollande stated in a press conference that ISIS has declared war on France.

The two attackers, who said they were from the so-called Islamic State (IS), slit Fr Jacques Hamel’s throat during a morning Mass, officials say.

Police surrounded the church and shot dead both hostage-takers. French media named one of them as Adel K.

One of the hostages is in a critical condition in hospital.

President Francois Hollande, visiting the scene, in Saint Etienne-du-Rouvray, said the attackers had committed a “cowardly assassination” and France would fight IS “by all means”.

Pope Francis decried the “pain and horror of this absurd violence”.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May branded the attack “sickening” and offered her condolences to the people of France.

The suspect named as Adel K, aged 18, is reported to have been in custody and then placed under a control order, and had tried to enter Syria twice.

UPDATE I: French church attack: What we know.

UPDATE II: One of two suspects in a church attack that left a priest dead in northern France was known to anti-terror authorities.

Adel Kermiche, 19, was wearing an “electronic tag” during the deadly hostage incident at a Catholic church in the town of Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, prosecutor Francois Molins said.

The monitoring apparatus was a condition of his house arrest after two attempts in 2015 to travel abroad — at least once to Syria — using a relative’s identification, Molins said.

Kermiche was identified via fingerprints after the attack, which French President Francois Hollande said was committed in the name of ISIS.
The second killed attacker has not been identified.

ISIS Claims Responsibility for Nice, France Islamist Terror Attack … Its Our ‘soldier’ Behind Nice Truck Attack

ISIS CLAIMS RESPONSIBILITY FOR NICE TERROR ATTACK

 An Islamic State-run media outlet says the man who barreled his truck into a crowd in the French coastal city of Nice is a “soldier” of the group.

The Aamaq news agency on Saturday cited a “security source” as saying the attacker “carried out the operation in response to calls to target the citizens of coalition countries fighting the Islamic State.”

The statement did not name the attacker, and the language implied that he may have acted independently. There is no evidence IS was involved in planning the July 14 attack.

The attack killed 84 people and wounded 200. The driver was identified as Mohamed Bouhlel, a Tunisian deliveryman known to authorities as a petty criminal.

80+ Dead in Truck Islamic Terror Attack on Bastille Day in Nice, France (Update: Terrorist Killed)

MORE THAN 80 DEAD IN TERROR ATTACK IN NICE, FRANCE

UNREAL … It has happened again in France … Radical Islamic terrorism. A truck plowed into pedestrians during Bastille Day celebrations in Nice, France Thursday leaving at least 80 people dead. France’s president called this an “obviously a terrorist attack.”  The WAPO is reporting that at least 84 people are dead as a driver also opened fire on revelers before being shot dead by police.

A truck plowed into pedestrians during Bastille Day celebrations in the popular French seaside city of Nice Thursday, leaving at least 80 people dead in what the nation’s president called “obviously a terrorist attack.”

The deadly toll, which included several children, came after the truck slammed into revelers gathered on a promenade to watch fireworks, French President Francois Hollande said in an address Friday morning.

“Such a monstrosity,” Hollande said. He pledged to step up efforts to fight terror in Iraq and Syria, and said he will seek to extend a state of emergency by three months.

“France is deeply saddened, but it is also very strong,” Hollande said. “I can assure you we will always be stronger than the fanatics who are trying to attack us.”

The driver was fatally shot by police, Hollande said. It is unknown if there were accomplices, Hollande said. French media, citing a police source, reported that ID papers belonging to a French-Tunisian were found in the truck. A source told NBC News the driver is believed to have been a French national of Tunisian descent.

UPDATE I: France mourns after 84 killed in Bastille Day atrocity.

41 Dead and 239 Injured in Co-ordinated Terrorist Suicide Attack at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport (VIDEO)

TERRORIST ATTACK HITS TURKEY’S ISTANBUL ATATURK AIRPORT, 36 41 DEAD.

Three explosions rocked Istanbul’s Ataturk airport in a co-ordinated suicide attack as innocent people ran for their lives. In the end there are 41 dead, to date, and nearly 240 injured following this radical Islamic terror attack. However, it is expected that the death toll could rise to 50. Three suicide bombers drove to the airport in a taxi and starting shooting before they blew themselves up. Although they have not officially claimed responsibility for the terror attack, ISIS is suspected.

Witnesses have described the terrifying moment three suicide bombers launched a co-ordinated attack on Istanbul airport that has left at least 41 dead saying there was blood and body parts everywhere.

Shocking footage has shown an explosion at the door to the arrivals hall by a suicide bomber before another two attackers snuck into the building and detonated their devices.

Twenty-three of the victims were Turkish citizens and 13 foreign nationals were also among the casualties, an official has said. A total of 41 people have already been confirmed dead, but Turkish officials said that number is expected to rise to 50.

This morning the airport has re-opened while investigators piece together what happened, just hours after the attacks, which also left 239 people injured.

One of the passengers who was traveling through Ataturk airport at the time of the blasts was Laurence Cameron, a British cameraman who was traveling from Latvia to Izmir, on the Turkish coast.

UPDATE I: Airports in the U.S. and around the world increased security in the wake of Tuesday night’s suicide bombing attack at Istanbul airport.

Airports in the U.S. and around the world increased security in the wake of Tuesday night’s suicide bombing attack at Istanbul airport, in which the Islamic State terror group is suspected of killing at least 41 and injuring hundreds more.

The body count was expected to climb in the wake of the attack at one of the world’s busiest airports after three suicide bombers opened fire with AK-47s before blowing themselves up as police engaged them. As if to underscore Turkey’s determination to carry on in the face of a growing threat, the airport reopened Wednesday, just hours after the dead and some 239 wounded were carried away and glass and debris cleared.

“The findings of our security forces point at the Daesh organization as the perpetrators of this terror attack,” Turkish Prime Miniser Binali Yildirim told reporters at the airport, using the Arabic name for ISIS. “Even though the indications suggest Daesh, our investigations are continuing.”
