ISIS Celebrates California Wildfires Death Toll as Supporters Suggest Ways to Make It Worse


The Islamic State militant group (ISIS) described the death and destruction associated with the recent California wildfires in its latest newsletter, days after supporters suggested laying gasoline-filled bottles in the woods to inflict further damage.

ISIS has not claimed responsibility for the raging blazes that have killed at least 41 people and injured 100 more across California, but the jihadis appeared eager to share the news of what they called “the worst fire disaster in the history of the United States.” In the “Events This Week” section of ISIS’s weekly Al-Naba magazine, the militant group told readers Thursday that recent conditions have hindered firefighting and search-and-rescue efforts.

“The fires that broke out Sunday (Muharram/18) swept the state, displaced thousands of people and destroyed more than 200,000 hectares of land. Strong winds have led to the hampering of the efforts of nearly 8,000 firefighters fighting 20 fires,” the online ISIS publication said.

The wildfires may have appeared only as a footnote in the magazine’s 101st issue, which included in-depth articles about battles with Syrian troops in Deir Ezzor and the killing of a top Syrian Republican Guard member, Major General Issam Zahreddine, but its release came only days after an ISIS supporter shared a homemade plot to make the fatal fires even deadlier. – READ MORE
