TERROR! LONDON TRAIN BUCKET BOMBER INJURED 22, REPORT TERROR SUSPECT ARMED WITH KNIVES, MORE BOMBS

Posted on Updated on

 

Police are today hunting for the ‘bucket bomber’ who tried to blow up a rush hour Tube train and injured 22 people – but Donald Trump says the terror suspect was already in Scotland Yard’s ‘sights’ before the attack.

The crude IED could have killed dozens but failed to properly detonate and sent a ‘wall of fire’ through the carriage at Parsons Green injuring at least 22 people including a ten-year-old boy.

Today officers are hunting for the bomber – and a potential cell – amid claims the terror suspect is armed with knives and may have left other devices.

Terrified passengers were seen covered in blood with scorched hands, legs, faces and hair – others suffered crush injuries during a ‘human stampede’ as they ‘ran for their lives’ in west London at 8.20am.

But the US President has sparked a diplomatic row after tweeting: ‘Another attack in London by a loser terrorist’ and saying police should be ‘more proactive’.

The Met hit back and said it was ‘pure speculation’ and also refused to confirm Sky News’ claims they have identified the bomber from CCTV.

Washington and London found themselves at loggerheads after the Manchester terror attack when US officials named the suicide bomber as Salman Abedi and pictures of the bomb – when British police refused to.

TRAIN JIHAD: AL QAEDA PUBLISHES GUIDE FOR DERAILING TRAINS IN U.S., EUROPE….FROM CARS, TRUCKS, VANS, NOW TRAINS?

Posted on Updated on

 

Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has released the 17th edition of its Inspire magazine, in which the group calls on supporters to strike trains in the US and Europe.

The editors of Inspire say that followers can choose from one of three modes of attack. They can directly target the train from “either inside or from outside,” or target “the rail itself so as to derail the train,” or assault train stations, which “are always crowded and cause major interruption towards the transportation system.”

The latest issue of Inspire focuses mainly on the second means of attack, providing readers with step-by-step instructions for building a train derailment device. An 18-page guide to building a derail tool is included in the 97-page electronic magazine and signed by the “AQ Chef,” a name that has been attached to previous AQAP ideas, such as a how-to guide for building bombs that was published in Inspire years ago. The “AQ Chef” claims that the magazine’s “train derail” design is similar to the “industrial” tool “used by the track management staff” when they need to derail a train with faulty breaks.

The instructions begin with the building of a mold and end with the construction of a metal derail device. “We will keep away from using any electronic tools or tools that are specially used in construction…so as to remove any traces for suspicion,” the do-it-yourself guide reads.

This “weapon” has several advantages, according to AQAP. It is “[e]asy to design” and easy to “hide your tracks from forensics after the operation.” It will supposedly befuddle security agencies and leave the enemy “confused and disoriented.”

Interestingly, AQAP touts the fact that this type of “operation” does not require “martyrdom” and therefore “can be repeated.”

 

Hours after the new Inspire magazine was released online, the New York Police Department (NYPD) Counterterrorism Bureau responded with a series of messages on its official Twitter feed.

“We’ve known about the content & threats presented in the current issue of AQAP’s Inspire 17 prior to its release,” one NYPD tweet, seen on the right, reads. “Our robust multi-layered counterterrorism apparatus is designed to protect our air, land, waterways and railways in #NYC,” another tweet reads.

 

Al Qaeda has targeted trains in the past

Targeting trains is hardly a new idea, of course. On Mar. 11, 2004, al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists placed ten bombs in backpacks and bags on board commuter trains in Madrid, Spain, killing 191 people and wounding nearly two thousand more.

In 2009, US officials thwarted an al Qaeda plot against commuter trains in the New York City area.

In 2013, Canadian authorities arrested two men who were plotting to derail trains traveling between Toronto and New York City. Canadian officials determined that the two jihadists, who were subsequently convicted on terrorism charges, received “support from al Qaeda elements located in Iran” in the form of “direction and guidance.”

In addition to trains and planes, al Qaeda has also attacked other transportation nodes in the past. The July 7, 2005 London bombings, which are referenced in the new edition of Inspire, targeted commuters during rush hour.

LONDON: FIVE ACID ATTACKS IN 90 MINUTES BY TWO THUGS ON MOPED

Posted on

Two men on a moped carried out five acid attacks in a 90-minute period in London on Thursday night, leaving one victim with life-changing injuries on Hackney Road junction with Queensbridge Road (pictured)

 

Two men on a moped have carried out five acid attacks in a 90-minute spree of violence across east London last night.

The gang pulled up alongside five men and doused them with a corrosive substance  –  with one stealing their motorcycles and the other making off on the moped they arrived on.

One of the victims was left with ‘life-changing’ injuries, while another was said to be a pizza delivery man attacked on a night shift.

The five attacks took place on busy streets in Stoke Newington, Hackney and Islington between 10.25pm and 11.37pm last night and are all believed to be linked.

Scotland Yard said today that a teenager has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and robbery – but another suspect remains on the run today.

The shocking incidents come after a spate of acid attacks across Britain, including one on a 21-year-old model who was left with horrific burns to her face.

Assaults using acid have more than doubled in England since 2012 – up from 183 five years ago to 504 in the year to March 2017.

LONDON MOSQUE ATTACK: ONE DEAD, 10 INJURED AFTER VAN PLOWS INTO MUSLIM WORSHIPERS

Posted on Updated on

After the attack the man was reportedly tackled by civilians, and a crowd of angry bystanders gave him to police

 

( Daily Mail ) One person has been killed and ten more injured after a white van driver screaming ‘I’m going to kill all Muslims’ ploughed into worshippers near a renowned north London mosque, in the latest terror attack to rock Britain.

A 48-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after the van mounted the pavement and veered into a congregation outside the Muslim Welfare House, near Finsbury Park Mosque, shortly after they finished Ramadan evening prayers.

Heroic bystanders wrestled the suspect – who was clean-shaven with curly hair and wore a white t-shirt – to the floor and pinned him down until officers arrived after he allegedly screamed: ‘I want to kill all Muslims’, and ‘I did my bit’.

At the time of the attack, which was just after midnight, several people were heroically giving first aid to an elderly member of the public who had collapsed at the bus stop with a medical issue.

Today, police confirmed he was the man who had died. Metropolitan Police deputy assistant commissioner Neil Basu said it is not yet known if his death was caused by the attack.

DEADLY GREEN ENERGY: GRENFELL TOWER ‘GREEN ENERGY’ CLADDING MADE FIRE SPREAD QUICKLY

Posted on

  • Grenfell Tower  cladding, or exterior insulation, added in 2015 to comply with “green energy” requirements, allowed the fire to quickly engulf the building.
  • Grenfell Tower  installed a cheaper cladding made of “powder-coated aluminium panels that are usually filled with plastic insulation, which is flammable,”

 

From Daily Caller:

It’s unknown what sparked the Grenfell Tower fire Monday, but the exterior cladding, or exterior insulation, added in 2015 to comply with “green energy” requirements, allowed the fire to quickly engulf the building.

…The company operating Grenfell installed cladding in 2015 as part of a $12 million retrofit. The Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organization, which owns the building, installed a cheaper cladding made of “powder-coated aluminium panels that are usually filled with plastic insulation, which is flammable,” The Guardian reported.

…. Experts say that flames were able to engulf Grenfell Tower so quickly because a space between the cladding and the building created a chimney effect through which the fire rapidly spread upwards.

“I have never seen a fire that has engulfed an entire building like this in a career of more than 30 years,” Matt Wrack, who heads the Fire Brigades Union, told The Telegraph.

“It could be that this is the quest for sustainability trumping other concerns,” echoed Dr. Jim Glockling of the Fire Protection Association.

…The building owners planned on putting in fire barriers on each floor, but it’s not clear if they ever did, The Guardian reported.

Glockling told The Guardian that his own tests on the cladding found if the barriers had any breaches, by a pipe or other object, “a chimney effect may quickly develop that will cause the very rapid consumption of the insulation and expansion of the damage area.”

LONDON FIRE BLAMED ON ‘EXPLODING FRIDGE’, BUT RESIDENTS REPORT SMELL OF BURNING PLASTIC – SIGN OF ARSON JIHAD

Posted on Updated on

A woman covered in ash is comforted by others as she looks on while the enormous fire rages through the night and into the morning

 

Conflicting stories on what started the London fire in Glenfell Tower. Arson jihad or fridge explosion?

While residents report smelling burning plastic, report says the fire started when a fridge exploded and ripped through a 27-storey west London tower block in just 15 minutes.

 

ISIS instruction for arson jihad is to use napalm solution using styforoam:

” transforms the contents of his Molotov cocktail into a sticky, long-burning long-burning napalm solution, to ensure – by Allah’s permission – that the intended target properly catches fire before the gas finishes burning.”

To make napalm, ISIS recommends jihadists save Styrofoam from toy packaging or pick up “foam cups used for hot coffee at donut shops.”

A survivor broke down on live TV as he said his neighbour on the fourth floor had confessed that his ‘fridge had exploded’ and the fire swamped the building –  but the fire service told MailOnline it is too early to confirm the cause. But the fridge has a circuit breaker to stop any fire and freon – the liquid – is not flammable.

12.30am: Residents report smelling burning plastic
 12.54am: London Fire Brigade receive the first call
Based from the pictures and report, Grenfell Tower has lots of Muslim residents. What percentage, that we don’t know. Some are asking if this could be an arson jihad.

From PJ Media:

ISIS recommended arson as a simple terror tactic that arouses little suspicion in the planning stages.

“Because many flammables are a part of everyday living, arson attacks are extremely difficult to prevent. Indeed, no more than a large container of gasoline (petrol) is needed for a successful attack. Of course, the gasoline can be acquired from any local gas station, where it is filled into the container,” the article continues. “This procedure should not arouse any suspicion, as it is quite common to follow, especially when obtaining gas for a lawnmower, amongst other reasons.”

Instructions then follow on how to make a Molotov cocktail, emphasizing that “due to the fast rate at which gasoline burns away, it is better that one transforms the contents of his Molotov cocktail into a sticky, long-burning napalm solution, to ensure – by Allah’s permission – that the intended target properly catches fire before the gas finishes burning.”

To make napalm, ISIS recommends jihadists save Styrofoam from toy packaging or pick up “foam cups used for hot coffee at donut shops.”

Suggested target locations for arson attacks, the magazine states, “include houses and apartment buildings, forest areas adjacent to residential areas, factories that produce cars, furniture, clothing, flammable substances, etc., gas stations, hospitals, bars, dance clubs, night clubs, banks, car showrooms, schools, universities, as well as churches, Rafidi [Shiite] temples, and so forth. The options are vast, leaving no excuse for delay.”  – Read more: ISIS Singles Out Dallas Megachurch in Call for Arson Jihad
