It’s been a very bloody Friday.
In addition to the terrorist attack in Lyon, France, there have also been attacks at a Shi’ite Mosque in Kuwait and a tourist hotel in Tunisia.
The attack at the Imam Saddiq mosque was a suicide bombing which took place during Friday prayers. At least 10 people have died in the attack.
Meanwhile, 27 people have been killed at the seaside resort of Sousse. A majority of the dead are British and German tourists. It is believed that two gunmen were responsible. One has been killed and the other is in custody.
The attack comes just over three months after 23 people, again mostly tourists, were killed at the Bardo National Museum. While ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, the Tunisian government blamed al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).
While it is unclear if these attacks in France, Kuwait, and Tunisia were co-ordinated, it does demonstrate what I’ve been saying for years. Islamic terrorism is a global phenomenon.
