A second terror attack was allegedly attempted in the city of Cambrils, Spain. Police say that it was connected to the Barcelona incident earlier today. Four terrorists were killed and one wounded by Mossos d’Esquadra, the police unit of Catalonia. It wasn’t the only problem… a house was flattened on Wednesday after an explosion that police now say is also connected to the attack in Barcelona.
Bomb makers in Alcanar Platja Wednesday night
Before the attack in Barcelona, a house in the city of Alcanar Platja where suspects were making bombs exploded, killing one and injuring 7 others. The blast was so powerful it damaged six other properties in the area. Police confirmed that the people inside were making bombs and that the explosion is related to the Barcelona attack.
Fast forward to today, when at least three, possibly four jihadis, attacked people in Barcelona with a van and gunfire, leaving 13 dead. Two people have been arrested, the driver of the van is still at large. ISIS has claimed responsibility on their AMAQ media, although they always claim responsibility.
In the city of Cambrils, police advised people to stay home, even though four jihadis were killed. They have determined that the four and their wounded cohort were connected to the attacks in Barcelona, so are calling it a thwarted terror attack.
The city of Cambrils is south of Barcelona. It’s been a long day for the people of Spain.
Now a shooting and a car running over more people on Cambrils, Spain. All connected with the terror attack. Wtf is going on?!?
