New York – ISIS extremists are celebrating through “chilling messages” on social media the terrorist attack that killed 14 people and injured 17 others at a hospital in California.
Hours after the massacre that shook the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California, where three heavily armed terrorists stormed through the clinic and killed 14 innocent people, ISIS Twitter accounts are praising the attack.
Through tweets in Arabic, ISIS praised the three shooters calling them “three lions”, according to Vocativ, which discovered the posts on forums frequently used by ISIS extremists.
“Three lions made us proud. They are still alive,” one ISIS supporter allegedly tweeted prior to the police standoff where the dark SUV reportedly used by the gunmen was cornered and shot at by police.
“California streets are full with soldiers with heavy weapons. The Unites States is burning #America_Burning #Takbir” “God is great and he the one to be praised for that,” another ISIS Tweet said.
“This is hell with god’s will,” said a third ISIS supporter. “God is the greatest. May god spread fear in the homes of the Crusaders,” he added.
Following the Paris attacks of November 13, in which ISIS claimed responsibility, the “lions” reference was also used to praise the attackers.
Members of the Muslim community in the US are warning people against being trapped by ISIS, pointing out that the terrorist organization claims responsibility for crimes that have nothing to do with its ideology just to show to the world that it is powerful and has followers everywhere.
“I think it’s a local traditional crime, it has nothing to do with. ISIS are always claiming similar action to show that they have influence and followers everywhere… They Take advantage of this kind of crimes to use them in their propaganda,” Med Abdeljalil, a resident of New York, told Morocco World News
