Out of the ten attackers, two attackers blew themselves up, seven were killed and one was detained. The attack began at around 2 pm.

These coward/moron terrorists say that they are fighting for religion, and then kill people while they are praying/attending mosques..!

It is strange, the questions are baffling. Whether a government should close it’s border to protect it’s citizens. But many of the terrorists attack are carried out by the residents of the country, who have been attracted by the stupid ideals of IS.

#Syria #BasharAssad #rebels #victims #blast #MiddleEast

A deadly explosion at an evacuation point killed more than 100 people, including children, government supporters and opposition fighters. The blast happened in the al-Rashideen area. A number of vehicles caught fire due to the blast.

Since no one claimed the responsibility of the blast, government media and the opposition exchanged accusations pointing to conspiracies undermining the transfer deal. State TV al-Ikhbariya said the attack was the result of a car bomb carrying food aid to be delivered to the evacuees in the rebel-held area.

According to Abdul Hakim Baghdadi, an interlocutor who helped the government negotiate the evacuations, 140 were killed in the attack. He added it was not clear how many rebels were killed.

Why. Just one after another, incidents are happening in Syria and 50 plus people are killed everytime. What is this? What can anyone accomplish from killing children?

Just in 2011, President Bashar Assad’s rule reduced the residents of Madaya and Zabadani to hunting rodents and eating tree leaves. Photos of children gaunt with hunger shocked the world. And Russia supports this government? What the Hell.

I can’t even imagine what had gone through the kids during that moment in the class. They would be have been terribly afraid. I wish people are able to show their support for the kids, and also pray for the injured. May the people who died rest in peace.

Taliban attack in Lahore

#Taliban #Pakistan #terrorism #censusWorkers #Lahore #victims #soldiers

Seven people, including five soldiers, were killed and 19 others were injured in Lahore, Pakistan when a suicide bomber blew himself at Bedian Road, targeting a private van engaged by the Lahore cantonment board that was carrying soldiers.

Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan claimed responsibility of the attack. Five soldiers, the bomber and an official of the Pakistani Air Force who was passing in a motorcycle were killed.

Muhammad Usman, the driver of the van was arrested, because there was no reason for him to stop the van at that particular spot on the road, and this led the soldiers to be an easy target in a stationary van.

Such morons, thinking they have done a great and honorable act, but instead they are just shaming their own beliefs and group.

Dozens killed in Chemical attack

#victims #Syria #BasharAssad #chemicalAttack #Russia #US

A chemical weapons attack in the town of Khan Sheikhoun is believed to have killed at least 58 people, which did include 11 children. People were gasping for breath and convulsing in the streets and overcrowded hospitals. Witnesses said that the chemical weapon was carried out by Sukhoi jets operated by the Russian and Syrian governments.

Volunteer medics used fire hoses to wash the chemicals from victims’ bodies, many of which were stripped to the underwear. The attack reminded people of a 2013 chemical assault that left hundreds dead and was the worst in the country’s ruinous six-year civil war.

Donald Trump, US President, denounced it as a ‘heinous’ act that “cannot be ignored by the civilized world.”

Syrian government tried to reject the claims that it was responsible, and said that it does not posses any chemical weapons, hasn’t used them ever and won’t be using them in the future. The Russian defense ministry said the Khan Sheikhoun residents were exposed to toxic agents from a rebel arsenal hit by a Syrian air strike.

This was the third claim of a chemical attack in just over a week in Syria. The previous two were reported in Hama province, in an area not far from Khan Sheikhoun.

What is wrong with Syria, if the claims are true, how can it do such atrocities against its own people..

Russian metro train bombing

#Russia #train #StPetersburg #bombing #terrorism #IS #victims

A metro train carriage was bombed in St. Petersburg on Monday, killing 11 people and injuring 45. There have been no proclamations as of yet, but the Russian law enforcement are suspecting a suicide bomber with ties to radical Islamist.

President Vladimir Putin visited the scene of the explosion on Monday night and laid red flowers.

Russian media broadcasted that a bearded man was being sought by the police for questioning, however he was cleared after the individual stepped forward and inquired. The human remains examined by the police said that the blast was carried out by a suicide bomber.

Many people in the Russian society see the metro bombing as proof that Russia should not have intervened in Syria to fight the ISIS, which is the reason such attacks are back to the country.

Two years ago, the Islmaic State group said it brought down a plane carrying Russian touriests home from a Red Sea resort. All 224 people on board the flight were killed.

Please pray for the deceased, and wish speedy recovery for the injured.

I do not even understand what are these terrorists even fighting for. Earlier they said it was for religion, but no religion would ask another human to forcibly convert to that religion. So what is this for? What is this exactly? Trying to cling on the hope of taking control over the world by terrorism.

Colombia Landslide

#ClimateChange #Colombia #victims #landslide #naturalDisaster #heavyrainfall #weather

Heavy rainfall on Friday night, about 130 mm which was about 30% of monthly rainfall in one night,  led to a sudden rise in rivers and caused a mudslide in the town of Mocoa, a town of 40,000 in Colombia’s Amazon basin.

The mudslide is said to have swept away homes, bridges, vehicles and trees. The Colombian Red Cross has put the number of confirmed deaths at 200, and it is still unclear how many people are missing. Atleast 203 people were injured, some 300 families were affected and 25 homes destroyed.

Marta Ceballos, a 44-year old street vendor, said that The only things I fortunately did not lose were my husband, my daughters and my nephews.

A senior United Nations official had said that Climate Change played a big role in the cause of these floods and landslides that had hit the Pacific rim of South America severely in the recent months.

UK terror attack, Trump’s son criticizes London’s mayor Sadiq Khan

#UK #terrorism #Parliament #victims #international #police #TrumpJr #LondonMayor #SadiqKhan

Four people and the attacker were killed, while 40 others were injured in a shocking attack on the iconic Westminster Bridge in London. The attacker used a car to run down several pedestrians, killing four people and leaving many more with severe injuries. The driver then rammed the car into the Parliament fence and fatally stabbed a police officer as he tried to enter the building. The attacker was shot dead by the cops when he tried to enter the building.

Among the injured were French high school students, two Romanian tourists, five South Korean visitors, police officers and a woman who jumped in the Thames river to avoid the car.

The police confirmed that there was only one attacker, however they are still looking for any possible leads.

Leaders from all over the world, including Trump from US, Mrs. Angela Merkel from Germany, Mr. Justin Trudeau from Canada, Mr. Narendra Modi from India, Mr. Francois Hollande from France and many more expressed their sadness for the incident and extended their full support to Britain.

Oh, and on the contrary (also as should be expected), Mr. Trump Jr. took it to twitter on criticizing Mayor Sadiq Khan just two hours after the attack. He was immediately supported by some people, but many more defended the Mayor and insisted that his Muslim identity would not be a factor as the city comes to grips with the incident. Read here.

I am surprised, what possible motivation can any person have to kill innocent citizens, or students! I can’t comprehend the attacker for this stupid and disgusting attack. You are a coward to do things you want, things you desire the right way, and then you resort to such tactics.

Kindly pray for the deceased, and wish speedy recovery to the injured.
