ISIS Claims Responsibility For Jakarta Terror Attacks Targeting Foreigners And Security Forces
Isis has reportedly claimed responsibility for the Jakarta attacks in a statement released through one of its allied propaganda agencies.
“Islamic State fighters carried out an armed attack this morning targeting foreign nationals and the security forces charged with protecting them in the Indonesian capital,” Aamaaq news agency said on its Telegram channel.
There has been no official confirmation of the claim but police previously said they believed militants had been "imitating" the November attacks in Paris.
Seven people, including five suspected attacks, died in suicide bombings and shootings in the Indonesian capital on Thursday morning.
