ISIS militants have lauded the jihadis who murdered seven people and left 48 injured in Saturday’s terrorist attack on London Bridge.
Although ISIS has not claimed responsibility for the attack, numerous images have been posted on jihadi messaging channels with links to ISIS celebrations of the killings along with pledges to perpetrate additional atrocities.
ISIS has instructed its followers to attack infidels in the West during Ramadan using vehicles and knives.
Just after 10 p.m. Saturday, three terrorists in a van mowed down 20 people on London Bridge then went on a knifing spree through Borough Market, randomly stabbing victims.
The jihadis, who were wearing fake suicide-bomb vests, were eventually shot and killed by police outside of Wheatsheaf pub.
One message posted by celebrants featured the faces of jihadis killed during other European terror attacks, with a message that said, “Let Paris be a lesson for those nations who wish to take heed.”
The caption read, “Crusading Brits now living in a state of terror and fear! Where is your great Kingdom now?”
Western nations who are engaged in fighting ISIS in the Middle East are commonly referred to by the terrorist group as “crusaders.”
Other posts noted that the recent attacks represented “the black days we’ve promised.”
Other posts encouraged additional attacks, advising extremists to “do your jihad even while you are in Europe.”
Another jihadi pledged that “we will continue to terrorize you and ruin your lives. Today we fight you on our land, and tomorrow on your land, by Allah’s permission. Soon, the vehicle attacks will be witnessed on your streets, by Allah’s permission.”
Twelve arrests have been made in association with the attack.
According to NHS England, 21 people remain in critical condition at London hospitals.
