Barcelona Terror Attack

At least 14 people were murdered and over 100 injured during a terrorist attack Thursday afternoon in Barcelona, Spain. The Islamic State, or ISIS, has claimed responsibility. A white, rental cargo van was used to mow down pedestrians along the Las Rambla avenue, a popular tourist location. The driver escaped and a manhunt is underway for his arrest. Prior to this, a house exploded in Alnacar on Wednesday evening, about 70 miles away, where one body was found. Also in the rubble were evidence of some 30 gas canisters used for storing butane and propane. Spanish authorities suspect that the house was being used to make bombs for the Barcelona attack. After the attack in Barcelona, over night in the town of Cambrils, 5 men wearing fake suicide vests drove a car towards a crowd, crashing it into a police vehicle. All 5 men were killed by police.

 

 

 

This is the largest terrorist attack in Spain following the Madrid train bombings in 2004, which claimed nearly 200 deaths. There is no doubt that this was an act of radical, Islamic terrorism. Intelligence sources had been hearing much ′chatter′ on various websites with references to Barcelona. Several months ago, the CIA passed along to Spain warnings specifically about the Las Rambla area of Barcelona. Thursday victims included women and children, and victims included citizens of some 18 nations. Barcelona is a major sea port, and a ′hub′ for many cruise ship lines.

 

The area of Las Rambla which seems to be the focus of the attack is known as a ′Jewish′ one. Many of the shops and restaurants cater to Jewish customers. The entire avenue is full of gift shops, food and gift kiosks, restaurants and taverns. There is a pedestrian area which runs along the center of the avenue, with vehicular traffic on either side. The attack occurred at 5pm, local time, when the street was crowded with people.

 

Spanish authorities believe that the Barcelona terror attack was carried out by a terrorist cell of at least 9 to 12 people. Two suspects have been arrested in connection with the attack. Five were killed at Cambrils and one died, presumably a bomb-maker, at Alnacar. The driver of the van which mowed down pedestrians on Las Rambla is still at large and is considered armed and dangerous. Some idiots on CNN think that the attack was motivated by the incident at Charlottesville, but this is pure lunacy.
