German authorities said they found a video on the mobile phone of the Syrian suicide bomber who blew himself up in Germany in which he pledged allegiance to Islamic StateÂ leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdad. The terrorist group later claimed that the bomber identified as Mohammed Daleel was its soldier.
ISISÂ news agency released an alleged photo of Daleel, claiming he carried out â€œmartyrdom operationâ€ It also published a 2 minutes video where the attacker is heard pledging his allegiance:
â€œI renew my pledge of allegiance to emir al-Muâ€™meneen Abu Bakr al-Baghdad, may God strengthen him. To avenge God, the prophet and believers and in response to coalition/Germany crimes of killing and bombing men, women and kids. I declare martyrdom operation in Ansbach, Bavaria province in response to killing of Muslims. You will not live peaceful as long as you fight the Islamic State. This operation is carried out with an explosive device but next time, it will be car bombs. To my family I say, I see you in heaven. ,May God accept me as a martyr. To the German people, you county is killing you by its actions. The Islamic State didnt start its war with you. To my brothers, the soldiers of Islamic State, who are in Germany and Europe, stay steadfastâ€ he said.
The 27-year-old Syrian denied asylum in Germany a year ago blew himself up on Sunday outside a crowded music festival, injuring 12 people in the countryâ€™s fourth violent attack on members of the public in less than a week.
