The Islamic State’s claim of responsibility for the Las Vegas attack is featured by its official Amaq News Agency propaganda channel, the outlet from which it has claimed terror attacks in the past.
But it also comes a day after the terror group claimed a deadly stabbing attack in Marseille — an assertion later disputed by French authorities, who said they were unaware of any IS link.
Israel’s Channel 2 news analyst Ehud Ya’ari dismisses the claim, saying “they claim credit” for all attacks.
Thread from me upcoming on ISIS Amaq claim of responsibility for Las Vegas attack, a claim made without a shred of evidence.
