Is the rise of terrorism tied to the rise of powerful Anti-Shia forces in Arabian Peninsula? (What do you think?)


Kuwait has identified the bomber as a Saudi citizen who flew into the country just hours before. Thousands of Shiites and Sunnis marched in Kuwait City on Saturday in a mass funeral procession for the victims.
Islamic State Tied to Attacks That Kill Dozens on 3 Continents 
 

Dozens of people were killed on three continents Friday in attacks tied to the Islamic State. In Tunisia, a lone gunman shot dead 38 people in the resort town of Sousse before being killed by police. Most of the victims were European tourists. A witness described the attack.

Katrina: “We were lying at the beach. Everything was fine, it was paradise, beautiful sea, and everything was good. And suddenly make ‘pop, pop, pop, pop, pop,’ and we thought it was fireworks over there, they were practicing something. And then everybody suddenly stand up, and they were running, running, really fast, and everyone cried, ‘Run, run, run, run, run!’ And also the security, they all told us to ‘run, run. Go into your rooms. Run away.'”

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the Tunisia massacre. Thousands of Tunisians marched in Sousse on Saturday to denounce the killings and show solidarity with the victims. ISIL also took credit for a simultaneous attack in Kuwait, where a suicide bomber killed 27 people at a Shiite mosque. Kuwait has identified the bomber as a Saudi citizen who flew into the country just hours before. Thousands of Shiites and Sunnis marched in Kuwait City on Saturday in a mass funeral procession for the victims. Meanwhile in France, two militants attacked a U.S.-owned factory in the town of Grenoble, leaving one victim decapitated and several others wounded. The attackers tried to blow up the factory by ramming their car into gas containers. The decapitated victim had employed one of the two suspects. The attackers reportedly carried an ISIL flag and covered the victim’s head in Arabic script.
