Isis claims Las Vegas shooting: What have they said?

Still without providing any evidence, ISIS once again-for a fourth time-claimed it was responsible for the mass murder that occurred in Las Vegas on Sunday night.

The extremist group claimed that the shooter was "a soldier" who had converted to Islam months ago. "The idea that the Islamic State simply scans the news in search of mass killings, then sends out press releases in hope of stealing glory, is false", Atlantic National Correspondent and author Graeme Wood noted Monday on why the claim should be taken seriously.

It came as big unfortunate news to everyone when shooting incident in Las Vegas claimed several lives and left more than 500 injured.

Eric Paddock told reporters in Orlando, Florida, his brother "had nothing to do with any political organization, religious organization, no white supremacists - nothing, as far as I know".

Paddock reportedly killed himself as police moved in on the 32nd-floor hotel room he was using to shoot down on the crowd.

Another Oct. 2 communication claims that Paddock was acting under the requests of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi for the objective of "targeting the coalition governments".

It received multiple assessments from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office and attracted a supermajority of Senate votes. Using the budget process, Republicans need only 50 votes, assuming Vice President Mike Pence casts the tie-breaking vote.

Authorities have yet to identify a motive for the shooting, and said initially there was no evidence of any connection to worldwide terrorism. It claimed an attack on a Philippine casino on June 2, 2017, where a gunman had killed 36 people. He also urged followers to step up attacks and "burn" their enemies everywhere.

Isis was also linked to a vehicle and knife attack in Edmonton, Canada, where a police officer found a flag used by the group in the perpetrator's auto. "This is about trying to remain in the news cycle, trying to say we are still here", he said.

Gerges said the Las Vegas attack claim illustrates the extremely hard position ISIS faces at home and its lack of strategic coordination.

The statement, in Arabic, read, "Attacker of the #Las_Vegas shooting is a soldier of the Islamic State and carried out the operation in response to targeting coalition countries".

"More likely, ISIS's supporters will believe what the group says and not what is proven beyond a doubt by the Western media", Clarke added.
