ISIS Claims Responsibility For Sri Lanka’s Easter Attack

  • 24 Apr 2019

The ISIS terror group has claimed responsibility for the Easter bombing in Sri Lanka.

Amaq, an ISIS-affiliated news agency, released a video of several extremists pledging allegiance to ISIS, claiming they represented the terror group that attacked Sri Lanka.

CNN, in an exclusive report, revealed that India's intelligence service warned Sri Lanka of the possibility of the attack over two weeks ago, based on information obtained from the interrogation of a suspected ISIS terrorist.

The suspect revealed he was involved in the radicalization of Zahran Hashim, who is believed to be one of the suicide bombers in the terror attack.

A memo had been sent on April 11, stating that the leader of Sri Lankan extremist group National Tawheed Jamath (NTJ), Mohamed Cassim Mohamed Zahran (Zahran Hashim) and his followers had been planning suicide attacks in Sri Lanka. This memo was signed by Sri Lanka's Deputy Inspector General of Police.

ISIS news agency Amaq further reported that the unmasked man in the video was Zahran Hashim, the leader of NTJ. This was confirmed by Azath Salley, Governor of Sri Lanka's Western Province.

The Sri Lanka Easter attack which claimed 359 lives, is believed to be one of the world’s worst terror attacks after the 9/11 Twin Towers attack in New York, which took place in 2001.
