Third Terrorist ATTACK In Germany In One Week; This Time It Was By...
Marking the third terrorist attack in Germany in the 7 days, a Syrian refugee who failed to receive asylum in Germany blew himself up in a suicide attack on a music festival Sunday night.
According to BBC, the attack in Ansbach — near Nuremberg and approximately 100 miles from Munich — injured 15 people, some of them seriously. Investigators have discovered that the 27-year-old attacker filmed himself pledging allegiance to ISIS.
According to investigator Joachim Hermann, the attacker on the video "announced an act of revenge against Germans because they were standing in the way of Islam."
Hermann added, "I think it is unquestionable that it is a terror attack with corresponding Islamist convictions of the perpetrator."
A terrorist attack on Friday in Munich killed 9 people and injured many after a teenage gunman with dual German and Iranian citizenship opened fire in a McDonald's and a mall. While investigators have not found a direct connection between him and ISIS, they have discovered he had an obsession with mass shootings, according to CNN. A Muslim witness also reported that the gunman yelled "Allahu akbar!" twice as he shot at kids and teens in McDonald's.
Last Monday, an ISIS-inspired teenager wielding an axe and knife attacked travelers in a crowded train, injuring several people.
According to Al Arabiya, German authorities have 410 leads on potential terrorists who have snuck into the country with refugees.
The local Neue Osnabruecker Zeitung newspaper reported that, “In view of continuing migration to Germany we must assume that there could be active and former members, supporters and sympathizers of terrorist organizations or Islamist-motivated war criminals among the refugees.”
