PHOTOS & VIDEOS: ISIS Terrorist Attack in Las Ramblas, Barcelona

A rental van has driven over a crowd of people crossing a busy intersection in the tourist area of Las Ramblas in Barcelona, Spain. According to the AP, the van “jumped” the sidewalk and hit people. 13 people are confirmed dead with at least 80 injured.

A suspect has been arrested by Spanish police and he has been named as Detenido “Driss” Oukabir. The Spanish language El Pais newspaper named the suspect, who was identified by the Civil Guard in that country. They write, “The van used in the attack was rented by Driss Oukabir, in the town of Santa Perpetua de la Mogada, according to the identification made by the Civil Guard.”

However, some investigators believe that it really Driss’ brother is behind the attack. According to El Pais, Driss’ brother, Moussa Oukabir, 18, stole the documentation of his brother. Moussa lives in Barcelona, while Driss is a French national. La Vanguardia reports that Driss went the police to state that his ID had been stolen after today’s events.

A3 News reports that a passport has also been found in a van belonging to a Spanish citizen based in Melilla, on the north coast of Africa. It is unclear if this is related to Oukabir, who is from Morocco.

ISIS has claimed the attack.

La Rambla, sometimes pluralized as “Las Ramblas,” is a a street in central Barcelona, popular with both tourists and locals.

Things will continue to escalate in violence world wide. Just b/c it may not be so bad or bloody where you are at present, don’t get a FALSE sense of security.
These End Days will not be pretty. For anyone.
Get right with Jesus. He is the Only Way, TRUTH, & Life there is.
This world is Doomed.
Thanks to lost mankind.
