Manhattan Attack: “What do you expect,” ISIS asks America
Minutes after the terror attack in Manhattan in which 8 people were mowed down by a truck, the Islamic State posted celebratory messages on the social media and its chat groups.
In a host of messages, the ISIS said, " you killed men and widowed women and orphaned children. What do you expect?" An ISIS supporter had taken a picture close to the attack site in August and posted it on the social media, SITE Intel Group said.
The ISIS has been inspiring its followers to carry out attacks in the US and other Western countries amidst losses in Iraq and Syria. The ISIS while posting celebratory attacks, has however not claimed responsibility for the same as yet.
The ISIS had posted several messages recently on its social media site. While one message read, "End of America," another said, " run over them without mercy."
It may also be recalled that the ISIS had recently advised its supporters to rent vehicles and mow down civilians.
