From the Bataclan Theatre in Paris, one of the first quoted attackers was overheard saying, “I am from ISIS” and IS on Twitter is saying that this is France’s September 11th. If this is Daesh, or simply another reckless claim from them, it is unclear and will be for some time. Daesh, or IS and Al Qaeda are historically well noted for accepting responsibility for attacks and incidents of which they played no part. Terrorist organizations act as drunken public relations agents, assigning their brand to anything which may further perpetrate their message as they use the media as free advertisement.
Claims aside, eight fanatics armed with assault weapons and wearing suicide vests targeted innocent civilians in Paris. They launched a synchronized attack on six locations throughout the city of Paris on the 13th of November, 2015; where they murdered 133 people, and wounded another 352, of those, 99 are in critical condition. At 21:30 local, terrorists entered the Bataclan Theater and opened fire, after a hostage stand-off with French authorities, one hundred were dead. On the corner of Rue de Charone and Rue Faidherbe, eighteen were murdered by a gunman at a restaurant. A Le Caillon, a gunman at another restaurant murdered fourteen. Two explosions at the Stadium, Stade de France, where the French President was enjoying a soccer match. Three suicide bombers with vests loaded with explosives and nails detonated themselves while attempting entry into the stadium; two at the gates after being discovered and another at a nearby McDonalds; one was killed.
