    The teenage boy was stabbed multiple times and the attacker pushed the 15-year-old girl into the water. On Saturday, the Islamic State news agency Amaq claimed responsibility for the murder.T

    he knife-wielding Islamist aged 23 or 25, attacked his 16-year old victim from behind as he sat on a bridge with his girlfriend.

    Victor, the teenager, died a short time later from multiple stab wounds, Bild reported. The girl managed to wade out of the water and alert emergency services.

    “A soldier of the Islamic State stabbed two individuals in Hamburg city on the 16th of this month,” Reuters reported on the Amaq statement. “He carried out the operation in response to calls to target the citizens of coalition countries.”

    The latest claim by Islamic State comes the day after four people were injured in a stabbing attack in Frankfurt this Friday.

    “In the #Hauptwache [district] in #Frankfurt there was a knife fight. There are many colleagues and rescue workers there”, Frankfurt Police tweeted at 5.20 last night.

    While the attacker remains on the run – as was the case in Hamburg – police have assured the public there is no further danger. Frankfurt police spokeswoman Chantal Ench confirmed the attack took place inside the Hauptwache station during the afternoon.

    The police say they are investigating the number of attackers involved at the station in Frankfurt city center. No details on the ages and genders of those injured have emerged, the Telegraph reports.

    “Four people were injured during a stabbing incident in Frankfurt. All four are currently in hospital,” the police tweeted later.

    Germany has experienced a series of Islamist terror attacks linked to migrants and “refugees” as a result of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open border policy welcoming migrants from the Middle East and Africa.

    On September 18th 2015, an Iraqi asylum seeker with ties to al-Qaeda was shot dead after stabbing a German policewoman in the neck during an attack in west Berlin.

    In February of this year, another police officer was severely injured by a 15-year old Moroccan girl acting “on behalf of the Islamic State”.

    In July, four months later, an Afghan migrant wielding an axe, went on a rampage near the city of Würzburg, leaving four passangers on the train injured before being shot dead by police.

    And then, just five days later, a 27-year-old Syrian pledged allegiance to Islamic State injured more than a dozen Germans in a suicide-bomb attack at a music festival in Ansbach.

    Earlier this month, the town of Chemitz was on lockdown after police raided the apartment of 22-year-old Syrian refugee Jaber Albakr. After his capture and arrest on suspicion of planning an attack on a Berlin airport, Albakr committed suicide in his jail cell.

    Frankfurt police however, urged the public to refrain from speculating about the incident.
