French Terror Attack: 86 Dead, 150+ Injured in Truck Attack

86 people are dead and another 150 severely injured in a suspected terror attack in Nice, France.

Truck used in Nice Terror Attack

Eyewitness reports say a truck plowed through a crowd of people who were out celebrating Bastille Day in Southern France. The truck continued plowing over the people for over a mile, once it stopped a gunman reportedly jumped out of the truck and began to open fire on the crowd at the seafront Promenade des Anglais.

The gunman was shot dead by police but there were reports that an accomplice had fled. Christian Estrosi, president of the region, says the truck in Nice was loaded with arms and grenades.

ISIS immediately took to social media to celebrate the apparent terrorist attack as retaliation for the death of Abu Omar al-Shishani—the terror group’s so-called “minister of war”—who was killed earlier this year by coalition forces while fighting in Iraq.

On Twitter ISIS released the following statement:

“This is the beginning of the attack to take the holy revenge for the killing of Abu Omar Shishani, may Allah accept him,” a jihadi posted on the ISIS al-Minbar forum shortly after the attack. Another supporter posted on Twitter: “The spark of the attacks on the name of Abu Omar Shishani has just begun from France, the next will be worse and bitter.”

Two weeks before the Nice attack, French authorities announced they were increasing the amount of security being deployed for the holiday season. CRS riot police, who were previously not allowed to carry firearms, were deployed throughout the area with firearms and bulletproof vests for the first time.

The change in policy came two weeks after an unarmed French police chief and his partner were killed in a stabbing in front of their house outside Paris. Isis claimed responsibility for that attack, which sparked a debate in France about whether the police forces should be allowed to carry firearms outside working hours.

  1. Thank God they armed the police. If not, these criminals would have been able to kill hundreds more.

    … and we haven’t given these global thugs an ultimatum why?

    seriously, “Ok we won’t directly attack or kill you, we will not attack any city, we will just use nuclear warheads to turn the surrounding areas into a nuclear wasteland, your herds will die or mutate, your farms will also become so contaminated that your wives, and your children will suffer the effects of radiation poisoning ( introduce Hiroshima photos of after effects of radiation) your land will become so inhospitable you will die from starvation or radiation and in the end NOTHING will be left of you, or your people UNLESS YOU STOP”
