Once again, ISIS has claimed responsibility for mass murder of 59 people and injury of over 500 more October 1, 2017 at the Mandalay Bay resort in Las Vegas. This is the third time in five days that the Islamic State has claimed responsibility for these actions.
ISIS claims that the shooter, Steven Paddock converted to Islam six months ago and carried out these attacks for them, and that his new name was Abu Abdul al-Amriki.
Here is a translation of the ISIS Newsletter claiming responsibility:
Las Vegas Invasion
A soldier from the soldiers of caliphate targeted a large gathering of 22,000 Americans at a concert in Las Vegas, inflicting nearly 600 killed and wounded.
The executor of the operation Abu Abdull Barr al-Amriki, 64 years old converted to Islam six months ago.
Method of Executiion
The brother up to Abu Abdull Barr stationed himself for the invasion on the 32nd floor of a hotel overlooking a concert, and opened fire continuously on the crowds using 23 guns and more than 2000 rounds, and died, May Allah except him, after exhausting his ammunition.
Results of the Operation
