As the world watched this weekend as a white nationalist plowed his car into a crowd of protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing 1 and injuring 19 others, little did they know that just five days later a similar, more deadly attack would take place in Spain.
Just hours ago, a speeding van plowed into a crowd of people in Barcelona, Spain, killing at least 13 and injuring more than 80 people. The attack, which ISIS now claims responsibility for, is yet another disgusting example of hate and division on this planet.
“The perpetrators of the attack Barcelona are Islamic state soldiers, it was carried out in response to the targeting of coalition countries,” announced the ISIS-linked Amaq News Agency.
The attacker has been identified as Driss Oukabir, and the van was allegedly rented prior to the attack in the town of Santa Perpetua de la Mogada. While the death toll may continue to rise, and exact details of the attack are still not fully understood, a video has surfaced moments ago which shows the complete carnage caused by this disgusting act of terrorism, moments after it occurred. We want to warn you that the video is incredibly graphic, and may not be suited for younger audiences.
“The United States condemns the terror attack in Barcelona, Spain, and will do whatever is necessary to help. Be tough & strong, we love you!” tweeted President Trump.
