    Vienna police confirmed in a tweet that a mass attack was being carried out across the city. After news of the attack broke, the government of Czechia, a country bordering Austria, announced that it was initiating controls at its borders.

    “This is the most difficult day for Austria in many years,” said Interior Minister Karl Nehammer (ÖVP) at a press conference in the wake of the terrorist attack in the capital of Austria, Vienna. “We have several injured, several dead, and the special forces have succeeded in eliminating a heavily armed terrorist,” said the minister.

    Nehammer once again appealed to the Viennese in particular to stay at home. Given the situation, Vienna mayor Michael Ludwig agreed to suspend compulsory schooling on Tuesday.

    Ludwig said 15 people were injured including 7 in a serious condition. According to the latest information, at least four civilians were killed and one perpetrator was shot. According to Austrian Interior Minister, quoted by Austrian media Der Standard, several “heavily armed and dangerous” attackers were currently on the run.

    The large-scale deployment of security forces continued into the night. Some 150 Cobra and 100 WEGA officers were deployed, plus several hundred patrolmen and plainclothes officers. The general director for public security, Franz Ruf, said that security would be ensured.

    The assassin who was shot was an ISIS terrorist, according to Nehammer. The man carried a dummy explosives belt and was armed with an automatic assault rifle, a pistol and a machete. Nothing was announced about the origin of the terrorist for “tactical reasons”. Police President Gerhard Pürstl refused to provide any information, but initially announced that there were three fatalities (two men, one woman). The woman is said to be a waitress who was shot while she was working.

    According to the APA news agency, the act took place near the Israelitische Kultusgemeinde Wien (IKG) and its synagogue in the first district. A police officer guarding the synagogue is said to have been shot and seriously injured. Several media reported that he died from his injuries.

    But Jewish rabbi Schlomo Hofmeister contradicted the APA report: He told Kronen Zeitung that in his view, there was not an attack on the synagogue. “Let’s wait and see what the investigation reveals, but what I saw, the attacker(s) targeted the people in front of bars and then shot them inside the bars.”

    On social media, the attack was met with joy from Muslim users.

    The identity of the attacker is now known, Austrian sources indicated and his apartment was blown up. The question of whether a detonation perceived by several witnesses in the night in the Simmering district was the sound of the detonation, was not answered in the negative at a recent press conference.

      The alleged assassin, born in Lower Austria, with Islamic roots (southeastern Europe) is said to have been known in the radical Salafist scene for years, to have visited relevant mosques and lived in Transdanubia, and also had relevant criminal records. In mid-July, the 20-year-old is said to have traveled to Slovakia with a friend to get ammunition for his AK47 assault rifle. The car belonged to the mother of one of the numerous suspicious contacts (a Kosovar), all of whom had also been known in the radical scene for months or even years. The 12 young men arrested all lived in Vienna (10) and St. Pölten, a Chechen neighborhood. According to Austrian newspaper Kurier , the attack left seven dead, including a police officer.

      The only solution to this ongoing dross is a harsh one.
      And it involves repatriating Muslims and their connected cell (extended family) from Austria and Europe in general.

      Wherever there is a jihadi, there is almost always a support unit behind him. That is usually the family(as they always know what he was up to) friends and the holy inciter in the Mosque which the criminal attended.

      When under scrutiny they will blatantly and shamelessly lie (Taqiyya) to protect their religions interests (as urged to do in their holy book and scriptures)..

      But those lies must be ignored as they had enough benefit of doubt and now the goodwill is gone.

      The globalist experiment failed utterly.

        Well, it’s succeeding from the pov of the Globalist-Kalergist-Satanist scum, as well as their Reptilian overlords and Islamist allies.

      The basic problem is, that every Muslim is a potential Islamist, and every Islamist is a potential terrorist. So all the Islamists at least have to go, along with the infrastructure that supports them.
