Dallas, July 8: A Jihadi Telegram channel has urged its followers to find inspiration in today's sniper attack in Dallas. The channel has urged its Muslim followers to undertake similar operations, the SITE intel group reported. The message also directs the followers to instigate black men against the US government.
Five Dallas police officers were killed today. A total of 11 police officers were shot at a protest against police brutality. In the shooting by snipers, 5 officers lost their lives.
Jihadi outlets were quick to post their comments about this incident. Posting through their Telegram channel, the outfit urged its fan boys to draw inspiration from the attack. It said that online jihadists must instigate black men against the US government.
The ISIS has repeatedly warned America in the past. It had called the Orlando shooting. Moreover, the Orlando shooter had also pledged his allegiance to the ISIS before carrying out the incident. Intelligence Bureau officials in India say that these jihadi forums discuss all major incidents of violence.
If one scrutinizes their channels, all day long discussions on violent incidents and how to draw inspiration from the same are discussed. It comes as no surprise that they discussed the Dallas incident and are asking online jihadis to draw inspiration from it, the officer said.
