  • Following the attack, weapons and grenades were found in the truck.The attacker’s ID was also found there. According to French newspaper Nice Matin, the attacker was a 31-year-old man of Tunisian origin.
  • The ISIS terrorist group has not officially claimed responsibility for the attack but, according to reports, it is a likely suspect. Anti-terror investigation is ongoing.

France’s President Francois Hollande addressed the public and said the attack was “terrorist in nature.” He said that France’s state of emergency has been extended for three months and soldiers would be deployed to support security forces. Hollande also called to reinforce air strikes against ISIS targets in Iraq and Syria.

We remember, France is going to send an aircraft carrier and additional military advisers to fight ISIS militants in Iraq.
