While acts of terrorism have already taken place in the Islamic month, the Ramadan attacks have now been officially requested.
Ramadan attacks have become a commonplace in recent years. Only two weeks into the month, this year, and we have already experienced Ramadan attacks in Manchester, England, the London Bridge area, and Tehran, among other places. It should surprise no one that Iran has been hit since they have been fighting ISIS for some time now. Now, ISIS has officially called for Ramadan attacks, emphasizing Iran. The Associated Press headline bypasses this news: “Islamic State Calls for Ramadan Attacks In US, Europe.” But the story makes clear that Iran got special attention.
In an audiotape circulated online Monday, spokesman Abu al-Hassan al-Muhajer praised last week’s attacks in Iran’s capital, saying the country is “weaker than a spider’s web” and calling for more assaults.
He also called for more attacks on Russia.
