ISIS Claims Responsibility in Manila

ISIS claims responsibility for the attack on the Resorts World Manila, earlier this week. The Philippines resort attack resulted in at least 38 people being killed. ISIS said the suspect, yet to be identified, was an “inghimasi,” a kind of terrorist whose motive is to penetrate a place, shoot up people and then blow himself up. Philippine National Police Chief Ronald dela Rosa previously denied reports that the incident is linked to the terrorist group. The police said that all of the victims, found mostly on two floors, died from smoke inhalation as a result of the resort being set on fire.

ISIS Claims Responsibility for Deaths in Casino

The rampaging gunman was seen firing his M4 rifle in the air as well as setting fires throughout the casino. He was also caught on camera shooting at security forces in a stairwell. The gunman doused a number of gambling tables with gasoline and then set them ablaze. He later killed himself in a hotel room. His body has not yet been identified.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said, “He’s crazy, that guy is crazy.” The president discounted any links to ISIS saying the terror group “is more cruel and brutal,” indicating that they would have caused more scare and terror. The lone gunman didn’t shoot anybody. Witnesses said he changed magazines at least three times. They said, with all that ammunition, he could have killed hundreds of people inside the resort. Instead he just burned the casino.

The gunman stormed into the resort and he used gasoline to torch gambling tables. The fires caused clouds of smoke that killed more than three dozen guests at the hotel. During the rampage the gunman stole more than $2 million worth of casino chips – he later abandoned them in a bathroom.
