Barcelona Attack: ISIS Claims Responsibility

Barcelona Attack: ISIS Claims Responsibility ISIS
‘Soldiers’ of the Islamic State group carried out the deadly van attack in Barcelona on Thursday, the jihadist organisation’s propaganda outlet Amaq has said.

“The executors of the Barcelona attack were soldiers of the Islamic State,” Amaq said on its Telegram messenger account, without naming those it claimed were behind the attack.

At least 13 people were killed, after a driver deliberately ran a van into crowds on Barcelona’s most popular street, in what police said was a “terror attack”.

It is the latest in a wave of vehicle rammings across Europe in recent years.

Amaq said they had launched the attack, in response to calls to target states taking part in the United States-led coalition, battling the jihadist group in Iraq and Syria.
