Yesterday (Thursday), ISIS claimed responsibility for the Manhattan terror attack, in which 8 people were murdered. According to the terrorist organization’s newspaper al-Naba, terrorist Sayfullo Saipov was one of the Caliphate’s soldiers.

As reported by JOL, the 29-year-old Uzbek national admitted that he was inspired to carry out the attack by watching ISIS propaganda videos on his mobile phone. Despite claiming responsibility for the attack, al-Naba didn’t provide any proof of a connection between ISIS and Saipov.

Earlier this week, Saipov drove a rental pickup truck on a popular bike path next to Manhattan’s Chambers Street, striking pedestrians and cyclists, before crashing into a school bus. The terrorist told investigators that he planned the murderous attack during Halloween because he wished to inflict “maximum damage against civilians.”
