COLUMBUS, OH (WeAreChange) — The Islamic State (ISIS) has claimed responsibility for Monday’s stabbing spree at the Ohio State University which left 11 injured. The terrorist was fatally shot by police.
ISIS called the attacker, a 20-year-old Somali refugee, Abdul Razak Ali Artan its “soldier” in an update posted on Amaq News, the terror group’s official propaganda channel.
At this point in time, it is unclear as to whether Artan was in direct communication with the terror group before carrying out his gruesome attack on the students. However, Artan’s attack comes under the “lone wolf” category where an isolated terrorist, radicalized by hard-core Islamic propaganda, carries out the mandates of jihad.
The disgruntled Ohio State student used his car to ram into pedestrians on campus Monday morning before drawing a large butcher’s knife and mercilessly stabbing students. At least 11 people were hospitalized as a result of the attack.
