It is with great sorrow that we must bring you news of what appears to be another horrific terrorist attack. A truck drove into a crowd of revelers celebrating Bastille Day in the French city of Nice, killing at least sixty, possibly as many as seventy-three, and wounding hundreds more. Police report exchanges of gunfire with suspects, but the driver has been killed.

Daesh (ISIS/ISIL) has reportedly claimed responsibility for the massacre on Twitter, as retribution for a Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve coalition airstrike that killed senior Daeshi emir Abu Omar al-Shishani this week in the Iraqi city of Shirqat, south of Mosul, but there is still no word from their official propaganda outlet, Amaq News. 

Coming on the heels of a horrendously bloody week, it is clear that even though Daesh is losing ground on all fronts, they are pulling out all the stops to do as much damage as they can.

Bastille Day is a celebration of the storming of the Bastille fortress-prison by revolutionaires in 1789, freeing political prisoners and the event is largely seen as the beginning of the French Revolution.

UPDATE: Tweet from a Daeshi sympathizer reads something along the lines of
