The European terror crisis continues as another attack claims the life of an elderly priest in the most horrific fashion.
Knife wielding attackers stormed a Catholic church early in Normandy, and took an 86-year old priest and nuns hostage until they killed the parish leader and critically wounding another.
Two nuns were among the hostages, but a third one was able to sneak out and tip off the police. Law enforcement was on the scene really quick and did a good job deescalating the scene and making sure the terrorists didn’t kill everyone.
Police shot the two terrorists that claimed loyalty to ISIS in a heroic standoff before more lives were lost.
The terrorists were shouting “Allahu Akbar” during the ordeal and as they were shot.
One of the attackers is a local resident who was arrested last year for trying to travel to Syria.
The church that was attacked, was on a terrorist “hit list” found on a different suspected ISIS terrorist in April of this year.
It seems almost everyday there is another horrible terrorist attack in Europe. There were five last week alone in Germany.
After every attack, ISIS claims responsibility and calls the terrorists “soldiers of the Islamic State”.
In a statement published by its own news agency, Aamaq, ISIS praised the killers and said that the killing of the priest was in response to a recent call to arms by ISIS.
The Islamic State told all of its followers to step up attacks against the countries that are involved in the US-led coalition that is fighting ISIS right now.
