IS calls on Muslims in West to attack
Beirut — The spokesman for the Islamic State group is calling on Muslims living in Western countries to carry out more attacks, saying any loyalist who has the opportunity to “shed a drop of blood” should do so.
Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, in an audio recording released Monday, praised recent attacks in Australia, Belgium and France — where gunmen killed 12 people in an assault on the Paris office of Charlie Hebdo magazine.
He also praised the gunman who shot and killed a soldier in October at Canada’s national war memorial and then stormed the parliament building before being killed by security forces.
Al-Adnani also made reference to the death last week of Saudi King Abdullah, saying Muslims “are happy for the death of the tyrant of the peninsula.”
