ISIS “Ramadan operations” leave at least 211 dead in France, Tunisia and Mid East

Friday, June 26, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) demonstrated the broad scope of its brutal reach by perpetrating terrorist attacks on three continents – Europe, Africa and Asia, in one day, the second Friday of the Muslim festival of Ramadan. They caused at least 211 deaths. The deadliest occurred at the beaches of two hotels in the popular Tunisian resort town of Sousse, where gunmen killed at least 39 holidaymakers, many of them foreign tourists – mostly British and German. One gunman was killed.
In Kuwait, a suicide bomber blew himself up at a Shiite mosque. At least 35 worshippers were killed and 200 injured after Friday prayer.
In the Syrian Kurdish town of Kobani, ISIS forces, after regaining some of the suburbs from which Kurdish forces drove them out last month, reportedly “executed” 146 Syrians.
British Prime Minister David Cameron, who is attending the European summit in Brussels, announced he will be calling an emergency Cobra (security cabinet) meeting in London later Friday to discuss the attacks in France and Tunisia, in case the ISIS onslaughts were “the tip of the iceberg” of a coordinated operation.
