At Least 13 Killed, 50 Injured In Barcelona Van Attack. ISIS Claimed Responsibility

At least 13 people were killed and 50 others injured when a van plowed into a crowd in the turist area in Barcelona, Spain, on Thursday. Catalonia’s interior minister Joaquim Forn officially confirmed these numbers.

According to some media reports, the death toll could be even higher, up to 20 people. However, this still has to be confirmed.

One suspect was arrested after the incident described as a terror attack by Spanish police.

Spanish police have identified one of the suspects as Driss Oukabir. He had allegedly rented the white Fiat van used in the attack. It is not clear if he is the person who has been arrested.

A second van linked to the attack (assumed to have been used as getaway car) has been found in the town of Vic in Catalonia.

Rumors are also circulating that somebody has opened fire on police in Barcelona but no confirmation has appeared yet. Spanish media had also reported that two armed men were holed up in a bar in downtown. However, police later dismissed those reports.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack via its news agency Amaq.

It was the latest terrorist attack using a vehicle in Europe. The incident followed similar attacks in Nice, Berlin and London that have resulted in killing of over 100 people in total.

Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump suggested to use General Pershing’s methods to combat terrorism. During his presidential campaign Trump cited a dubious legend of dipping bullets in pig’s blood, shooting 49 of 50 terrorists, and telling the last one to tell his friends what would happen if they committed further terrorist attacks.

    There was Islamic terrorism in the US and Mexico in the early 1900’s? Did I miss something in history class? I thought Pershing was busy teaching rowdy Mexicans a lesson.

    • Apparently you missed the Spanish-American War of 1898, along with the subsequent US-Philippine War and the occupation of the Philippines. Pershing commanded US forces against Philippine Muslim terrorists with success. He also commanded US troops in the Pancho Villa Expedition against Mexican terrorists.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        in that time did not exist any terrorism, islam terorism on usa border sure not :)

        but pershing was bloody guy

        • Pancho Villa was a terrorist. His forces murdered many innocent Americans. I don’t see any mention of Muslim terrorism along the US-Mexico border in the early 1900s. Not in the article. Only in the comments. I think you are imagining the whole thread ;D

  • Antifa going to say it was a white supremacist, by the way, SAA made HUGE gains within the last hour.

    Pro-ISIS, pro-jihadist and Russophobic Western fags deserve more of
    this! Let their jihadist buddies whom they love and support Obliterate
    them to smithereens!

    • Rüdiger Preiss

      How do you know who was killed? None of the 13-20 people who died in this heinous attack might have been pro-ISIS, pro-jihadist or Russophobic. You call yourself “christianblood” – I don’t see anything Christian in your post.

      • martin aguilar

        RUDIGER, YOU AS WESTERNER ARE RESPONSIBLE OF WHAT ISIS DO !!! NATO AND USA ARE AT THIS PRECISE MOMENT AND FOR THE LAST 6 YEARS !! HELPING ISIS IN SIRIA AND THE REST OF THE WORLD , SO YOU ARE A MURDERER FOR ME. AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN RUSSIAN FRONTIERS , PILING ARMS JUST TO PROVOKE lll WW !! WESTERN BASTARDS !!!!

        • christianblood

          Indeed Martin! Russophobic U$ and Western (Nato) governments who all support and back and other jihadist groups in Syria elsewhere are elected

            It seems that you are celebrating when civilians in Spain are being murdered by terrorist.
            SO PERHAPS YOU SHOULD CHANGE YOUR NAME TO JUST ___blood :(

          • christianblood

            Where were the Western civilians when their Nato planes (and Spain is part of Nato) were bombing Serbian civilians, including women and children in the Balkans killing hundreds? Where were they when the U$ and its Nato vassals were collaborating with terrorist jihadists in the Balkans, especially in Kosovo removing hundreds of thousands of Serbs from their ancient homeland in Metohija? Where were they? Western societies and their pro-jihadist, postmodernist faggot governments hate us and hate Russia because we are Orthodox Christians and collaborate with their jihadists buddies for centuries to destroy us. The West is Satanic and Evil! This good American in the video clip below will tell why they hate us in 40 seconds! Watch please:

          • Bru

            Please have pity on the civilians. Most are naive, inocent sheep manipulated by our regimes. A few honest civilians like me know but can do nothing.
            The culprits are the collaborating mainstream politicians , important persons in finance or religion (like the popes since the Vatican ll council).

          • christianblood

            You are right! These dead civilians didn’t deserve this but their naivety and stupidity is really, really deeply annoying!

        • Bru

          Calm on , Martin. We people in the west can do nothing, all Western regimes (government and mass media) are controlled by the Zionist US regime .
          Most people are manipulated by the lies of the mass-media and don’t even realise how things work.
          Some do understand but we are too few and can do nothing. This mens in no way that we agree (and the less are responsible for) with the zio- imperialist international politics of our regimes, nor with their ethno-suicidal internal politics.

          • martin aguilar

            you are right, Bru

          • Bru

            Thank you, Martin. I am happy you changed your mind. I can understand we react too emotionally when we see all the evil the US regime has been doing the world, directly attacking countries or destroying them by supporting terrorists and factions.

      • christianblood

        Russophobic U$ and Western (Nato) governments who all support and back jihadist groups in Syria, in Libya, in the Balkans and elsewhere are all elected into office by their stupid and ignorant, pro-jihadist and pro-faggot Western civilians and these Western civilians deserve to be punished by the jihadists they love and support. Remember Aleppo? It was pro-jihadist Western civilian fags and their EVIl, Satanic MSM and “volunteers” who were spreaheading the anti-Syrian and anti-Russian propaganda there calling the jihadists there as “rebels” and as “freedom fighters” etc.

        • Wahid Algiers

          Aleppo fights were the last hope and dope for stupid western journalists. Now the western mainstream media shut up. The lying electro-jew (TV) don’ t report anything from Syria because Assad’s army is winning.

          • Wahid Algiers

            And these stupid western assholes supported the gypsies of Albania and mainly Kosovo.

          • Bru

            Yes such a shame, our regimes supported the Albanese Muslim migrants, Islasmist from the whole world came there (just as our regimes did to Afghanistan and Tchechenia) , now the birthplace of Serbia is no longer Serb and run by a mixture of islamists and criminals ( prostitution, drugs….) , thank you NATO!

          • christianblood

            You are absolutely right! Victory to the Syrian Army!

          • Rüdiger Preiss

            Victory to the SAA, I totally agree. Assad is one of the most decent presidents alive. Syria will rise like Phoenix from the ashes!

          • christianblood

            Indeed! Thank you!

        • Rüdiger Preiss

          I agree that the “Western Governments” (maybe call them Neocons and predatory capitalists, because these are the ones who pull the strings!) and Wahhabi Salafist goat-herders have brought this upon us. But surely that doesn’t mean that innocent people on the street deserve any of this ?!

      • Bru

        I support your points, you are not alone.

    • martin aguilar

      Christian totally agree with you !! Western Europe and USA deserve this and much more !! I hope that ISIS continue bombing them for the next 50 years, maybe then the west will understand…but I´m not sure at all !! Hipocrites !!!

      • martin aguilar

        AND WHAT IS YOUR EXCUSE TO BOMB IRAK AND SIRIA ?

        • Bru

          These people are responsible. In the end such views are not betten to me than those of the US-UK for carpet- bombing the civilians of cities of Germany and France, or the Vietnamese population , or the Muslim terrorist acts, I mean these views give support to these awful acts.

      • 888mladen .

        It’s collective responsibility. We’ve lost completely any feeling of solidarity with those who suffer in the world. What’s happening in Syria is not and isolated conflict.

      • Wahid Algiers

        Always affected when europeans where killed by self-made terrorists. But when the jewish US slaughters women and children in Iraq and now in Syria nothing can be heard. Western europeans are mostly in line with their criminal leaders. When Serbia was bombed none did sonething against although it was the first time that bombs were dropped after WWII. That is what Christianblood and martin leads to the opinion that the attacks now were deserved.

      • Bru

        yes

    • Bru

      If by chance you had been visiting this city, walking in this sheet at that time, would you have deserved dying or being wounded like this?

  • Serious

    Where are the hashtag #PrayForBarcelona ? XD.

    It’s not safe to live under NATO goverment.

  • Serious

    And I didn’t see any dead body. I don’t trust western goverment. Remember gladio operation. The italian goverment was working with CIA.

    • GSi2018

      Perhaps you should look a bit better.

    • You Commies always cite Gladio but never mention Soviet aggression that were the proximate cause. Go have tea and borscht, Trotskyite troll.

      • Bru

        Why do you call us commies? I haven’t notice anybody to be a Marxist or a communist here, and present-day Russia is even more capitalist than France.

        Gladio illegal secret network was active in Western Europe where I am, and we never had any Russian aggression, but instead American :
        – systematic bombing from my high of major cities (France, Germany), killing countless civilians. My ancestors survived by luck, (not their neighbours) but their houses and belonging were destroyed
        – systematic raping of French ladies and girls between Normandy and Paris , and murdering their resisting, defending fathers, husbands , brothers (it was an official and promised reward for the blacks who had been used as canon fodder for the landing from the sea)
        – illegal military occupation (BTW the pretext of Communist threat is no longer present and they removed the troops from Eastern Europe : why are we still being military occupied?)
        – illegal massive and systematic spying
        – covert control of mass media , government, parliament…

        • Before WW2, Soviets invaded Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania and Poland. After the war they occupied all of those countries plus Czech, Slovakia, Hungary and parts of Germany, Austria and Finland. To claim that Stalin’s Soviet Union was not an aggressive military threat tells me you live in a fantasy land.

          Truman issued Executive Order 9981 in 1948. Before that blacks were not serving in combat units. It isn’t that you’re uneducated. It’s that you know so many things that aren’t true.

          • Bru

            You are definitely so dishonest , instead of accepting my points you use red herring and straw man fallacies , rebutting things I never stated , e.g. I never stated that the soviet Union was not aggressive !

            I am only speaking about Western Europe, we’ve never been aggressed (bombed, raped, invaded) by the Soviets but only by the US and at least their control, massive spying and military occupation goes on ! These are my points, instead of answering them you used fallacies

            You haven’t answered why you absurdly insulted of us by calling with the fully impropriate name of ” commies” (while we could instead rightly call you a zio-US imperialist) .°

          • Bork!

          • Tudor Miron

            Richard, don’t try twisting the facts. Bru mentioned that Russians withdrew their troops from eastern Europe. There’s no commies to defend against yet most of Europe is occupied with US mil force (expanding).
            American banksters (same snakeheads that rule over you now) funded both Hitler and Stalin and thats a history fact.

          • LOL. This conversation is a rotary fustercluck! I only called him a Commie to rile him up. Obviously it worked!

        • Stop upvoting your own comments. :D

          Very well said.

      • Serious

        Blah blah blah. I don’t give a shit about terrorist american opinions. What are you doing in Syria terrorists ? Just go home to yourt shitty country that you have stolen from the Amerindians terrorist.

        • Bork! You think I support Obama’s war criminal activity in Syria?

          • Serious

            Why ? Didn’t Trump bomb syrian soldiers because his jewish daughter was cxxrying ? XD.
            Left or right, it’s the same shit in USA. War criminals and terrorists.

          • I never supported Trump attacking SAA. If you read my comments you would know that.

          • Serious

            So what ? You don’t support Obama. You don’t support Trump. Then, you call me a “commie”. XD. Of course, USA is not a democracy, it’s a terrorist state. Every US president is a war criminal.

          • Not a Commie?

          • Serious

            I am not a commie. You are just brainwashed by the US simplistic way of thinking.

      The west started to train and equip terrorists in the middle of the 1980s to fight against CSSR in Afghanistan. That was the beginning of several more mistakes in this direction.

      I understand your frustration. But people in the UK who have joined the Stop the War Coalition and voted for Jeremy Corbyn are not hypocrites.

There is hope!
