Fox News, and others, are reporting that the two remaining Islamic terrorists that assassinated innocent people in Paris this week have been killed today:
A member of Al Qaeda’s branch in Yemen said the group directed the massacre at a Paris magazine, hours after near simultaneous raids by French police on Friday killed the two Islamist brothers behind the attack and another terrorist.
The raids, conducted at locations 25 miles apart, took out Cherif and Said Kouachi and a suspect in a policewoman’s killing who had seized hostages at a Paris grocery on the brothers’ behalf, but also left at least four hostages dead, according to authorities and reports from the scene.
The Al Qaeda member on Friday provided to The Associated Press a statement in English saying “the leadership of AQAP directed the operations and they have chosen their target carefully.”
There was no independent confirmation of the report.
He said the attack was in line with warnings from the late Al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden to the West about “the consequences of the persistence in the blasphemy against Muslim sanctities.”
He said the group has delayed its declaration of responsibility for “security reasons.”
The lightning-quick strikes ended two tense, hours-long standoffs, one at a printing plant north of the city and the other at a kosher supermarket on Paris’ east side, where four hostages were killed, as many as 15 were freed. A hostage held north of the city by the brothers, who killed 12 in a commando-style attack at the offices of Charlie Hebdo, was reportedly freed. The fast-moving developments, signaled by explosions and gunfire at a printing plant in Dammartin-en-Goele, followed by similar sounds at Hypercacher (Hyper Kosher), a Jewish supermarket in eastern Paris, brought to a climax a three-day terror ordeal and manhunt involving nearly 90,000 police and military personnel.
A terrific effort and commendable job on part of the officers and all those who brought these mongrels to swift and righteous justice. There’s no martyrdom here for these Islamic terrorists, just swift justice that sent them straight to hell where they belong. Al Queda, all you’ve done is unite people against your senseless and violent methods poorly disguised as jihad in the name of Allah.
Let’s continue to take a stand against this radical hatred, publish freely, and fight for freedom for all.
