New Delhi, May 07: The bombings in Sri Lanka have shown that the Islamic State which lost ground in Iraq and Syria has gone on to become a sponsor of terror. Intelligence agencies who have been analysing the attacks in Sri Lanka tell OneIndia that the manner in which strikes were carried out clearly suggest that neither the National Towheed Jamath (NTJ) or the ISIS could have carried out the attack on its own.
There were clear indications of an Islamic State hand in the attack. Post the attack, several pro-ISIS channels portrayed that the attack was a revenge for strikes on Mosques and Muslims in General.
On Monday more such channels released images of the bombers and identified them as Aby Ubaida, Abu Mukhtar and Abu Barra. Moreover the attack also comes a month after an ISIS operative Abu Hassan al-Mujahir released a video in which he called for revenge in the aftermath of the New Zealand Mosque attack, which claimed 50 lives.
