ISIS on Thursday claimed responsibility for deadly shootings and suicide bombings that rocked the Indonesian, Pakistani capital,Jarkata and Islamabad respectively.
In a statement published online, the extremist group said that a number of bombs “detonated at the same time as attacks from four soldiers of the caliphate … with light weapons and suicide belts.”ISIS said Thursday it was behind an attack on a Pakistani television station that injured one person, in a claim warning the media against “concealing facts.”
Where as in Pakistan, two assailants on a motorbike threw an explosive device that appeared to be a grenade and fired gunshots at the ARY Pakistani TV offices in Islamabad late Wednesday, but fled when security guards fired at them, the station said on its Facebook page.
One employee was wounded when his head was struck by shrapnel, the station added.
Pamphlets in Urdu and English tossed by the attackers during the assault urged media not to side with “apostate army and government of Pakistan in their global crusade against Islam … by concealing facts.”
A radio broadcast from ISIS later claimed the assault, reports AFP.
