In a new report by InterCenter, Michael Weiss reports that after today’s attack in Normandy, France, the Islamic State has attacked outside of Iraq and Syria nearly every four days since June 8.
Yesterday, the Islamic State news agency Amaq News released a report about the attacks, after claiming a recent suicide bombing committed by Mohammad Daleel at a music festival in Ansbach, Germany.
Today, Amaq News released a statement regarding the murder of 84-year-old Reverend Jacques Hamel at Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray during Mass by two Islamic State sympathizers.
The BBC reports that armed men entered the church and took the reverend and four other people hostage. The hostage takers were later killed in a standoff with police.
