ISIS Amaq News Agency released a report in English on the New Year’s Eve slaughter at an Istanbul nightclub.
The announcement claims a fighter from the Islamic State carried out the attack in Istanbul where “150 Christian celebrants” were killed and wounded and forced to jump into the Bosphorus Strait.
When ISIS leader Abu Baghdadi last spoke in early November he said Turkey was a “priority for jihad”.
