The Islamic State (ISIS) has published images via social media showing its members distributing candy to civilians in a suburb near the city of Tripoli, Libya, in celebration of the attacks which targeted the French capital on Friday.
The Information Office of the "State of Tripoli", as ISIS calls it, published the pictures under the heading "Muslims rejoice after the blessed battle of Paris".
ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack on the French capital two days ago in a written statement published online, while pro-ISIS accounts on Twitter celebrated news of Friday’s attack, which killed at least 130 civilians and injured hundreds of others.
French authorities yesterday revealed the possible involvement of two Syrians and a Frenchman of Algerian descent in the attacks, which are believed to have been carried out by at least eight assailants.
