Reminiscent of the IRA’s 1972 Bloody Friday, three terror attacks today in the global jihad:
At least 27 people have died after an attack on the Imperial Marhaba hotel
The three attacks today, in Tunisia, Kuwait and France come just days after Islamic State (Isis) spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani used an audio message to urge jihadists to turn the holy month of Ramadan into “a time of “calamity for the infidels … Shias and apostate Muslims”.
While the report states “there is no evidence that the attacks were coordinated”, ISIS claimed responsibility for the Tunisia attack.
Additionally, the man arrested in France,
father-of-three Yassine Salhi who is understood to have been known to security services since at least 2006 – has already been arrested at the scene, telling police officers that he is a member of the Islamic State terror group.
Likewise, ISIS claims deadly mosque attack in Kuwait, where a suicide bomber killed 25 at the Shi’ite Muslim mosque,
The Islamic State militant group claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement posted on social media and said it targeted a “temple of the rejectionists” – a term it usually uses to refer to Shi’ite Muslims, whom it regards as heretics.
The murder is believed to have been accompanied by several explosions on the site cause by a terrorist igniting small ‘gas bombs’ that injured dozens of factory workers. It is thought the explosions may have intended to blow up the entire factory site but failed.

The victim’s head (which MailOnline has chosen to disguise in this image) was found staked on a gate at the factory’s entrance. Two homemade Islamist flags – one white and one black, both with Arabic inscriptions – were found alongside it.
According to French TV reports the decapitated man is understood to be the manager of a local delivery service.
The U.S. State department had no comments on the attacks as of the writing of this post.
He stated that it is his belief that the Islamic State “is not strong” and with an appropriate response, it would be possible to suppress and destroy ISIS within a matter of days.
“I think that ISIS is successful to a certain extent because they are not facing a concentrated effort to destroy the organization,” said Barak, adding “Technically they aren’t that strong- they are made up of only about 30-40 thousand people.”
Three attacks, three hours, three continents, one bloody Friday.
