The Orlando Attacks: Islamic State-Linked? :: Jihad Intel

If we are to be sure of the Islamic State link, then more evidence needs to come out. For example, it would need to be shown conclusively that he pledged allegiance to the Islamic State, or an outlet like Amaq News/the Islamic State’s al-Naba’ newsletter/the Islamic State magazine Dabiq would need to claim the attack, which may happen at a much later date. If this is the case, then it is hardly a surprise given that Islamic State spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani called for more attacks by Islamic State supporters in the West if the opportunity for hijra to the Islamic State territories is closed off to them, as part of a recent speech in which he acknowledged problems of territorial losses for the Islamic State though asserted that losing towns and strongholds would not be the end of the Islamic State.
