DAESH CLAIMS RE­SPON­SI­BIL­ITY FOR MEL­BOURNE AT­TACK

Daily Sabah (Turkey) - - International -

The Daesh ter­ror­ist group said one of its fight­ers car­ried out a knife at­tack in Mel­bourne in Fri­day on which one per­son died and two were wounded. The group’s Amaq news web­site pro­vided no ev­i­dence for the claim. “The one who ex­e­cuted the ram­ming and stab­bing oper­a­tion in Mel­bourne (...) is one of the fight­ers of [Daesh] and he ex­e­cuted the oper­a­tion in response to [a call] to tar­get the cit­i­zens of the coali­tion,” Amaq said. The text was re­fer­ring to a call in Au­gust by Daesh leader Abu Bakr al-Bagh­dadi to “use bombs, knives or cars to carry out at­tacks” in coun­tries tak­ing part in the U.S.-led coali­tion.
