Dozens of casualties in multiple Islamist terror attacks in Burkina Faso

Terrorists driving in pickup trucks and shouting “Allahu Akhbar,” opened fire Friday on the French Embassy and army headquarters in separate attacks in the capital of Burkina Faso in West Africa. At least seven soldiers were killed and more than 90 people injured. Five emergency centers were set up in hospitals, a military barracks and a stadium in Ouagadougou to treat the casualties, said Col. Amade Kafando, director general of Burkina Faso’s army health department. The embassy neighborhood also houses the prime minister’s office and the UN offices.  The Burkina Faso government declared full mobilization of the army in this former French colony, one of the poorest countries in Africa. An emergency situation room was opened at the French foreign ministry in Paris.

    Leave it to Islamic fascists to attack unarmed people in the poorest country in the world. May these murderous, hate-filled vermin be found and sent to hell. Redeploy UNRWA to help people who really need help at this time.

    Apparently even the two-legged Islamic rats do not want to take chances: attacking one of the poorest and most helpless countries in the world ! These murderous creatures are truly sub-human and must be exterminated like poisonous vermin ! Same goes for murderers of Israeli women and children.
