Several jihadis killed in Spain anti-terror operation after Barcelona Islamic attack

48

The police force for Spain’s Catalonia region says the fifth suspect shot in the resort town of Cambrils has died. The counter-terrorism op came about eight hours after jihadis in a van mowed down scores of people on a pedestrian walkway in a popular destination in downtown Barcelona, killing 13 people and injured an estimated 100 more.

They earlier tweeted that they are investigating whether the Cambrils suspects were wearing explosive vests. Its officers planned to carry out several controlled explosions.

Several killed in Spain anti-terror operation after Barcelona attack

Police in Spain announced early Friday they killed several people in an anti-terror operation in Cambrils, hours after a van rammed into a crowd about 70 miles away in Barcelona, killing at least 13 people.

August 17, 2017, By Travis Fedschun, Nicole Darrah, Fox News:

Police confirmed on Twitter they fatally shot five people after police suspected they were planning a second terror attack.

State-run broadcaster RTVE reported the suspects attempted to carry out a similar attack to the one in Barcelona, by driving a vehicle into pedestrians. It said seven people were injured — two seriously — by the suspects.

Authorities are investigating whether the suspects were wearing explosive suicide vests and officers planned to carry out controlled explosions.

The regional police force said its working to determine if the suspects in Cambrils were linked to the Barcelona attack, as well as to a Wednesday night gas explosion in Alcanar, which left one person dead.

BARCELONA ATTACK: WITNESSES DESCRIBE ‘CHAOS’ IN THE STREETS AFTER DEADLY CRASH

Meantime, authorities were on the hunt for the van driver that killed at least 13 people and injured more than 100. It was not immediately clear how the suspects killed in Cambrils may have been connected to the Barcelona attack.

At least two people have been arrested as suspects in the Barcelona incident, according to the regional president of Catalonia. One of the suspects is a Spanish national from Melilla, and the other is a Moroccan citizen who lived in Spain legally.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the terror attack on Thursday through its propaganda arm, according to SITE Intel Group.

“The perpetrators of the attack in #Barcelona are Islamic state soldiers and carried out the operation on command of [ISIS’ leader] of targeting coalition countries,” the ISIS release stated.

A senior police official said the van attack is connected to a gas explosion inside a house in the town of Alcanar Wednesday, in which one person was killed and seven were injured.

Authorities confirmed that police fatally shot the driver of a vehicle that drove through a police checkpoint and struck two officers earlier, but a Catalan police official said the dead driver “doesn’t have any connection with the terrorist attack we are investigating.”

Police initially named Driss Oukabir, the Moroccan, as a suspect in the attack. However, local media are reporting a man with that name told police that his identification documents were stolen, possibly by his younger brother.

BARCELONA TERROR ATTACK: TIMELINE OF RECENT VEHICLE INCIDENTS IN EUROPE

The white van jumped onto a promenade and sped through a pedestrian zone on Las Ramblas of Barcelona, the famous main pedestrian walk way that crosses the city. The van swerved from side to side as it plowed into tourists and residents.

“It was clearly a terror attack, intended to kill as many people as possible,” senior police official Josep Lluis Trapero said at a news conference.

RTVE reported that investigators think two vans were used — one for the attack and a second as a getaway vehicle.

Police killed a gunman in a shootout a few miles from Barcelona soon after the crash, El Mundo newspaper reported. However, police said later the gunman was not linked to the terror attack.

Local media originally reported two men involved in the attack had been holed up in a bar, but that was dispelled by Catalan police.

Barcelona Mayor Ada Colau announced a minute of silence will be held Friday in the city’s main square “to show that we are not scared.” The moment of silence will be followed by three days of mourning.

“We are a strong city in its diversity and values. Barcelona is a city of peace, of dialogue, of democracy, valient, open to the world. The cowards that have tried to plant terror will not get away with it,” Colau said.

“London, Brussels, Paris and some other European cities have had the same experience. It’s been Barcelona’s turn today,” said Carles Puigdemont, the head of the regional government.

Prime Minister of Spain Mariano Rajoy tweeted that he is going to Barcelona.

BARCELONA TERROR ATTACK: LAWMAKERS AND NATIONAL FIGURES REACT

A grisly video of the incident appeared to show at least five people lying motionless on the ground, with legs twisted and heads bloodied.

“It was real chaos, people started running, screaming. There was a loud bang,” eyewitness Ethan Spibey told Sky News.

Footage from reporters on the ground shows armed officers combing a market.

Albert Tort, a 47-year-old nurse who lives near Las Ramblas, told El Pais that what he saw at the scene was an “authentic disaster.”

“Police would not let me go through but I identified myself as a nurse and I went in,” he said. “What I saw was an authentic disaster. I counted at least 6 dead, I tried to revive a young [man] but it was impossible.”

“I heard a lot of people screaming and then I saw the van going down the boulevard,” another witness, Miguel Angel Rizo, said, “You can see all the bodies lying through Las Ramblas. It was brutal. A very tough image to see.”

Barcelona resident Keith Fleming told the Associated Press he was watching television in his building on a side street just off Las Ramblas when he heard a noise and went out to the balcony to investigate.

Fleming said he saw “women and children just running and they looked terrified,” he then heard a bang, possibly from someone rolling down a store shutter, as more people raced by.

The American living in the Spanish city said police arrived, and pushed everyone a full block down the street. He says the officers still are there with guns drawn and riot police stationed at the end of the block.

President Trump condemned the attack, saying in a tweet, “The United States condemns the terror attack in Barcelona, Spain, and will do whatever is necessary to help. Be tough & strong, we love you!”

Speaking from Panama, Vice President Pence called the day “tragic.” He acknowledged that ISIS took credit for the attack, and said “whoever is responsible should know, together with our allies, we will punish those responsible” and rid “Islamic terror” from the world.

BARCELONA ‘TERROR’: TRUMP, STATE DEPARTMENT MONITORING SPAIN ATTACK

Emergency services in Catalonia say they have asked the Metro and train services in the area to close. Police cordoned off the broad street and shut down its stores, and askedhttps://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/898243270169563136 people to stay away from the area so as not to get in the way of the emergency services.

Facebook has activated its Safety Check feature that lets users notify friends and family that they are safe following the Barcelona attack.

Barcelona’s tourism association has offered rooms in area hotels to tourists who have been displaced by ther attack.

The U.S consulate in Barcelona said on Twitter it was “aware of a reported incident at Las Ramblas in Barcelona. Please avoid the area and monitor local police @mossos for updates.”

“Americans in Spain: If you are safe, be sure to notify friends and loved ones. If you use social media, be sure to update your status,” the consulate tweeted.

The National Counterterrorism Center, the government hub for threat analysis, confirmed to Fox News the center is monitoring the events in Barcelona and note the use of a vehicle as a weapon.

TRUMP CONDEMNS BARCELONA TERROR, SAYS US ‘WILL DO WHATEVER IS NECESSARY TO HELP’

The Department of Homeland Security said Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke has been briefed on the situation. “DHS has reached out to Spanish authorities, and the Department is standing by to support our allies as they respond to and recover from this horrendous attack. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and those affected,” the agency said in a statement.

On Twitter, the Department said those who need information on U.S. citizens in Spain, to call 888-407-4747 if in the U.S. or Canada.

Spain has been the target of numerous terror attacks in the last few years, drawing the attention of the U.S. State Department.

The attack was the country’s deadlist since 2004, when Al Qaeda-inspired bombers killed 192 people in coorindated attacks on Madrid’s commuter trains.

Since July 2016, vehicles have been used to ram into crowds in terror attacks across Europe, killing well over 100 people in Nice, Berlin, London, and Stockholm.

Las Ramblas is a packed tourist area in central Barcelona whose central feature is a broad promenade leading to the water. The stretch is lined with numerous shops, restaurants, a sprawling market and Gaudí architecture.

People walk down a wide, pedestrianized path in the center of the street, but cars can travel on either side of the area.

    • Eugene Kaptur

      Vlad Dracula supposedly “put the fear of Allah” in their rectums when he made “forests” of impaled Muslim prisoners throughout Transylvania when fighting against the Muslim Invaders! Possibly that is what is needed again to “convince” the followers of the Cult of Islam to STAY in Africa and leave others alone. There is still an amusing 1920s Russian silent Film depicting his fight against Islam which I first saw while attending Russian Language School at DLI, Monterey, CA in the 1970s. I believe it’s still available for viewing on the Internet!

      The current moslem invasion of Spain is their second attempt to conquer Spain

      The evil moslem savages invaded Spain some 14 centuries ago but Spain successfully kicked the moslems out some 200 years later

      Those leftist politicians are traitors to all Spaniards and should be tried, convicted and promptly executed

      • John D. Horton

        And this time around the Pope says that Spain must convert to Islam as part of his dialogue with Muslims. The Pope says that the Spanish are required to pay for their own suicide by providing welfare to the Muslims.

    One needs to ask questions of the political leaders of the west. Why are YOU allowing more and more of these demented savages to enter the west. Your collective jobs are to protect the citizens you represent by their vote, not by any god given right. You are failing. Start doing your job and hit hard against ALL islamic organisations in your countries and remove ALL muslems from within the peoples countries borders, NOW you lazy, lying bastards and admit YOU were wrong in letting any of the muslem bastards In. You enablers deserve to be held accountable by the people and laws of each and every western country. You enable the perpetaration of death. You refuse to admit you are wrong. Why has no government yet said to its people we are sorry. They can not do that as I do not believe any politician can admit they are wrong.

    Figures just do not balance.

    They are killing us in mass for every one of them killed or locked up while Muslims have huge families.

    Just stupid we do not just get Muslims out as their culture does not mix with any faith. Sick of us bowing to them with Political Correctness.

    Our governments just back Muslims over our rights, and if we do not stand up against our governments and Islam we are lost. Got to get Muslims out with those that back them.

        It’s mating season, dummy. Weird things happen with donkey uckers.

  • Drew the Infidel

    As in the cases of London and Nice, some basic security measures are in order. First, those mostly pedestrian promenades need some concrete barricades called “Jersey blocks” strategically placed so that a vehicle does not ambush people at highway speeds. Also, a simple visible armed police presence on foot or bicycle patrol could help deter these types of attacks. Such items are commonplace at locations like the White House, and for good reason.

    Rental vans are old schtick. One was used in the ’93 basement bombing of the World Trade Center.

    • John D. Horton

      You can not win the war against the Islamic Invasion Army based on defense otherwise you have already lost the war because the EU is already under Islamic military occupation.

      The final solution = Mass deportation of all Muslims.

      • Drew the Infidel

        If you care to reread what I said it was “basic security measures” for the purposes of keeping the homeland safe. Since 9/11, the US military efforts in the Middle East have been anything BUT a defensive war.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      The problem is you’ll need these bollards practically everywhere. Any police on foot or on bicycles would simply become more targets of opportunity for the terrorist trucks and cars.

  • william carr

    The Islamists are winning. They win by tying up highly expensive and overstretched security agencies; they win by exploiting our social welfare systems to which they contribute nothing while producing lots of dependents, while true citizens have to fight to get a decent living standard; they win by exploiting our liberal court systems which are geared to protecting criminals rather than protecting the innocent citizens. Islamists are learning fast that apart from crimes where they get themselves killed
    they can expect leniency from the judiciary because of their lack of ‘cultural understanding’
    They are also winning because idiot politicians think they need to take in migrants from every country outside the EU
    for so called humanitarian reasons. Of course the citizens of EU countries are not consulted about that.

    • John D. Horton

      The Islamic Invasion Army is not a social problem but a military problem and the EU can not win until it recognizes this.

      The civil police cannot fight or win this war. Only the military and mass expulsions will win the war.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      What the hell is an “islamist”? Is that like a nazist?

  • Mal M

    Eurabia concept describes the process where Europe led by France and Arab nations started the Islamization and Arabism of Europe. As a result it weakening its existing culture and undermining an alleged previous alignment with the U.S. and Israel. Since the mid-60th France, led by De Gaulle, had the vision to establish an allied between North Africa and Arab states and France. All the Muslims that immigrate to France and later on to EU are the outcome of this process.
    As a result of Eurabia, Europe has today about 50 million Muslims that like change its culture from Christianity to Islam. Bravo France. Well done. You eat what you cooked. Bon Appetite.

    • John D. Horton

      Secular France will become Islamic France.

      What happened to the France of the French Revolution and the destruction of the Catholic Church and its replacement by the “Godess of Reason” only to now replace the Catholic Church with Islam?

      Spain also pulled their troops out of Iraq at the outset of the War on Terror following 9/11 as a means to appease the ragheads.

  • Eugene Kaptur

    If I remember correctly, about a decade or so ago, Spain capitulated to Moslem Terrorists who threatened WAR if Spain elected a Conservative Government, they instead electing a Liberal Socialist Government! At that time the Muslim Terrorists said that Spain made the correct decision and there would be no further Muslim Terrorism….apparently, LIKE USUAL, the Muslims lied to Spain! Now with hundreds of thousands of Muslims throughout their country they will suffer, and suffer and suffer until they give the Muslim Terrorists complete control over Spain! Really works out well to let Muslim Terrorists tell YOU what to DO in your own country, doesn’t it Citizens of Spain?

    • John D. Horton

    Why can’t Spain and the EU deport all Muslims back to Muslimistan? It would save everybody a lot of headaches.

  • Jimmy Crackorn

    the West is always reactive after the fact.. they round up suspects they already knew as being Islamic Supremacist. The PC West afraid of being labeled racist buy a racist group…lmao how ironic… Tools like the Western Media are backing the Globalist Communist Politicians and Antifa. They run the Narrative what do you expect….. Tools will be Tools.. they all say we must Pray after the deaths that could have been prevented.. unfortunately they are Atheist so they could care less but the Narrative sounds good dosent it.

  • Jimmy Crackorn

    also notice with open the borders in the EU how easily it is for the Islamic Supremacist to keep in contact with his fellow Supremacist throughout the EU .. its much easier to hide and plan their killing of the Infidel.

  • Michael Copeland

    “The white van jumped onto a promenade….”
    No, dear: not good enough. The driver drove the van, AIMING at pedestrians. It was jihad.

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    If this isn’t already happening in N. America and being covered up, it will be happening.

  • bannedquran20

    At least the Spanish police are fighting back. They have been searching for the terrorist and 4 have been shot and killed on the spot

  • The Spanish were able to fight off the jihad of Islam once before; I hope they can do so yet again!
