Shooting massacre in Las Vegas was carried out by one of its soldiers: IS group

Vastavam web: The Islamic State group claimed today that the shooting massacre in Las Vegas was carried out by one of its “soldiers” who had “converted to Islam” months ago.”The executor of the Las Vegas attack is a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried out the operation as a response” to calls to target countries engaged in military action against the jihadists, IS’s propaganda outlet Amaq said in online statements.Fifty people were killed and hundreds wounded last night when an attacker opened fire on a country music concert in Las Vegas, in the deadliest mass shooting in US history.
Police said Nevada resident Stephen Paddock had been found dead by special forces responding to reports of gunfire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel-casino.The statements come after IS on Friday released an audio recording of what it said was its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi calling on jihadists in Syria and Iraq to “resist” their enemies.That was seen as a move to boost the morale of its fighters under pressure in the Syria and Iraq in the face of offensives by the Damascus regime and its allies including Russia and US-backed fighters in both countries.
