ISIS celebrates its latest terrorist attack as it has claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s Brussel’s explosions which left almost three dozen people dead and quite a number seriously injured.
To celebrate the successful execution of their murderous attack, the sect released photographs showing jihadis handing out sweets to residents in Syria to celebrate the massacre in Europe.
Men and young male children of the province of Deir Ezzor, eastern Syria, were given bags of sweets and other items which was handed by militants.
The photos included a statement, describing how ISIS had distributed sweets to Muslims in ‘joy of the blessed attack against the Crusaders in Brussels.’
There were two attacks; one occurred with two explosions going off at the Zaventem airport at 07:00 GMT which killed 11 people and another struck the Maelbeek metro station near EU headquarters an hour later which left about 20 people dead.
The terrorist group Islamic released a statement via its social media which read:
“Islamic State fighters carried out a series of bombings with explosive belts and devices on Tuesday, targeting an airport and a central metro station in the center of the Belgian capital Brussels, a country participating in the coalition against the Islamic State.”
“Islamic State fighters opened fire inside the Zaventem airport, before several of them detonated their explosive belts, as a martyrdom bomber detonated his explosive belt in the Maalbeek metro station.”
Jan Jambon, Deputy Prime Minister of Belgium, declared that ‘the country will be in a state of mourning for three days, starting from today, even as countries around the world have expressed solidarity over the attacks’.
President of France François Hollande ordered for national flags to be flown at half-mast; the Eiffel Tower is to be lit in red and yellow which alongside black, makes up the Belgian flag.
POTUS, Barrack Obama, who is on a state visit to Cuban issued a statement of support after being debriefed at the U.S. Embassy in Havana:
“We will do whatever is necessary to support our friends in Belgium. We stand in solidarity with them in condemning these outrageous attacks against innocent people.
This is yet another reminder that the world must unite, we must be together.”
